That formula (fl/aperture) pretty much explains the 95mm lens diameter of my old Voigtlander Super Dynarex 350mm f5.6. I wondered why that thing was so huge (and HEAVY!). Someday when I'm feeling really strong I'll take it out and test it on my N7. I already have the dkl/nex adapter so I can use my legacy Schneider and Voigtlander lenses from my old film cams. I am really liking the V50 2.8, S28 2.8 and S135 4. I'm having a blast!
