Discussing Aperture Size:

The 135mm f/1.8 lens implies a maximum aperture (iris) size of 135mm/1.8 = 75mm.

I'm nitpicking a bit, but this is slightly wrong. Iris is the mechanical aperture of the lens. What you should be referring to is the entrance pupil (often also called aperture) which is the image of the aperture looked from the front of the lens.
