I'm confused

So what else is new I know, but...

I bought this 35mm lens because I wanted the equivalent of a 50mm for my Nikon digitals. This is not a lens that was designed for digital cameras (no DX stamp on it) so technically there should be a 1.5x conversion factor and 35mm x 1.5 = 52.5mm.

However, when I set my 18-200mm lens (a lens that was designed for digital cameras and is stamped as DX) to 35mm I see the exact same thing. Theoretically I should not see the same thing at 35mm but rather at 52.5mm and I really do not understand what is going on.

Anyone care to take a crack at explaining it to me?
