Using tele converter such 0.45x makes the F double. So if the max F is 2.8, it will become F5.6. This make speed slower although it gave additional length. DX is automatic extend the focal length without tele converter. Meanwhile if we use FX we need tele converter.

While I prefer DX also, going from one f-stop to the next, you double (or halve) the amount of light, you do not double the f-stop. In this particular exemple, a f/2.8 lens will end up as a f/4, not as f/5.6.

Some cameras, some lenses, some computers
