I haven't seen my nifty fifty for a while, but I recall that the front glass diameter is a lot smaller than the filter ring size, so the point about doubling glass diameter/area may still be true even if the filter ring diameter doesn't scale.

That's a good point. Looking at the block diagram, I'd estimate the front lens on the nifty 50 is around 32mm or a little less. I stand corrected.
