I went out one afternoon a couple of days ago with my Hexanon 60/1.2, and even with 7 stops of ND filters I couldn't shoot it wider than 2.8—the light was just too bright

This is just plain impossible. There's no place in the world where the daylight is so bright you cannot shoot at apertures wider than f/45 (= f/2.8 + 7 stops of ND filter). You can shoot at f/1.2 with a 3-stop ND in most places and with a 6-stop ND filter everywhere.
