Re: Aperture setting combined with faster glass

The simple answer is no.  F 4.5 is f 4.5.  Regardless of the lens, if your camera is set to the same iso and aperture, the shutter speed will remain the same.  The advantages the f 2.8 version of the lens might have over the f 4 version at f 4.5, might be in sharpness, distortion, etc., though I haven't looked at any test charts to see if that is the case.
