About

The f-stop of an optical system expresses the diameter of the entrance pupil in terms of the focal length of the lens; in simpler terms, the f-stop is the focal length divided by the "effective" aperture diameter. It is a dimensionless number that is a quantitative measure of lens speed, an important concept in photography.
