He has been explained before in other threads why the size limit of the Nikon F-mount does matter, and has been explained that his view of lens design is simplistic and that his silly idea of aperture size regardless of focal length has no meaning.

Yet he keeps on posting in these threads the same nonsense. So, best to point out he is writing nonsense, but educating him seems a lost cause. He will simply disregard any valid point.

By the way, the 55/58mm/50mm f1.2's from Nikon also filled out the F-mount, and left no room for the contacts. Probably a reason why no AF version has surfaced, and why the 50mm f1.2 Ai-S is still available .
