"Quality of glass"

I am trying to understand the difference in quality of glass between the Nikon DX and the FX lenses.

So if I took an 80-200 2.8 lens and tested against the 70-200 f4, would they be equal quality? What if I put them on a D800?

It appears the FX lenses cost less and I assume that is because of the absence of the aperture ring. So are the FX lenses even better than the old equivalent DX ones?
