and a probably really dumb follow up - when the EXIF data says say 38mm, does that mean before or after taking into account the m4.3 2x? so was my lens at 38mm or was it at 19mm? sorry for the inane question

Your lens is 19mm but compared to a 35mm camera it'll be 38mm due to the 2* crop factor. It really depends how you look at it. For me I still revert to 35mm so my 19mm I class as a 38mm f2.8 lens.  Hope this helps.
