32mm/1.2= 26.7mm

73.3mm/2.8= 26.18mm

(the physical aperture of zooms is measured at the long end / aperture

The math may be numerically accurate, but the resultant value is physically without basis or merit. You can't "divide out" by the maximum aperture like that! (though in the telephoto range it has some correlation with "relative complexity" I suppose, i.e. a 400mm F4 is about as hard to build as a 800 F8.)

Back on topic, a 32/1.2 has no equivalency with 73.2/2.8.
