That would cause even more confusion. Equivalent f is needed only to compare dof. But it doesn't change for exposure calculations. If equivalent f would be widely used - I'm sure, that lots of people would think, that lens is faster that it actually is.

LOL! It is listed that way exactly to make people think that it is faster (for <35mm formats).
