tko wrote among other wierd stuff :

Do you think a F2.8 cell phone lens, the size of a thimble, is equal to a F2.0 M43rds lens?

Equality is a funny thing. 100 pennies is equal to 4 quarters which is equal to a soiled crumpled up 1 dollar bill.

F-stop is a NORMALIZED number, normalized to the sensor size.

You are funny. .

The Hubble telescope is around F24. How can that be, when the lens is so huge and designed to gather light?

Once you figure this out, you will understand.
