As a photographer ..

Now why do you think that anyone would care about the aperture diameter? The aperture diameter is only relevant when it is coupled to the focal length because as a photographer I actually measure light intensity (or luminosity) when I use a light meter. It actually gives me an F stop and a shutter speed. It does not give me an aperture diameter and then asks me for a focal length or vice versa. So f/2 IS f/2 when it comes to taking photos! Isn't that what this whole website is about? It is not about people like you getting so pedantic as to confuse everybody about what really is important.

The aperture diameter only explains why, but of course no-one should care what the exact size is. However, as a photographer, were you to shoot with different formats, would you care what your pics would look like at the end. After all, f/2 from FT and f/2 from FF are hardly the same. Would that matter?
