Hello -

I'm thinking about the D100 for Christmas (or a little after), but only have a superficial knowledge of digital photography. I have two questions -

1 - I understand that there is a 1.5x effect on the lens focal length. My question out of ignorance is, does this have any impact on the maximum aperature? For example, some teleconverters make the effective aperature 5.6 instead of 2.8. Do we have the same situation with digital.

2 - I need to learn more about digital capabilities and how to achieve some of the results I've seen displayed on Nikonians. Do any of you digital mavens have an introductory book to recommend?

Thanks -
