I am a recent (and so far quite pleased) owner of a Nikon V1. I am in the process of voraciously learning everything I can about photography, for fun, and I am enthralled by the geometry and optics in particular. I'm trying to reconcile what I've learned so far about aperture, focal length, f-stop, and lens speed with the actual specs of the V1, and I've found something that is either contradictory or which I'm simply misunderstanding.
Here is a shot of the front of the 10-30mm zoom lens for the V1:
And here is a screenshot of the specs as stated on the Nikon website: http://imaging.nikon.com/lineup/acil/lenses/1_nikkor_vr_10-30mm_f35-56/
I note that the lens shows an f-stop range of 3.4-5.6. Yet the website states a minimum of 16.
Am I reading this wrong? Is there an equivalency between the two which can be derived with a third number? Or is this just a typo?
