I have preordered a D800 to replace my D80 camera body. Given the change from DX format to FX format, will my two primary lenses be of suitable quality for the D800?

-Nikon AF-S DX VR Zoom-NIKKOR 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 G IF-ED - I assume that since this is a DX lens that the image will still be subject to the effective mm compensation factor. Is that correct? And, will the image quality be good, or will it be compromised given the DX to FX compensation?

-Nikon AF-S VR MICRO-NIKKOR 105mm f/2.8 G IF-ED - Given that this is an FX lens, I assume it will function at 105mm on a 35mm FX basis.

Thanks for your insights.
