It seems to be taken as fact: FX is superior to DX for wide angle. Where does that come from?

Nikon makes a 14-24mm f2.8 FX zoom. It's terrific. It is also a BIG and expensive lens.

Sigma makes a 10-20mm f4 DX (15-30mm equiv). Tokina makes a 11-16mm f2.8 DX (16.5-24mm equiv). Both are terrific. Both are significantly smaller and less than half the price of the Nikon FX equivalent. With correction software, like DxO, all can be distortion-free.

So where is the clear FX advantage for wide angle? You can argue the general differences between FX and DX formats. But assuming you can get past that, it would appear that DX actually has more wide angle alternatives than FX.
