    Bellows extension vs effective aperture change with accessory lens

    Hello:

    Newbie question:

    I am prone to lens experiments.

    I 'added' a negative 2-element front cell from a Rodenstock-Ysarex Polaroid 110B lens to the back of the 130 mm 3-element lens from a Polaroid 150. I left the shutter/iris mechanism intact.

    This resulted in 300-310 mm f.l. as best I can estimate with a tape measure.

    It covers the better part of a 10"x13" ground glass, certainly with blurry edges. I'll have to see how much is useable.

    I want to estimate, if not determine what the new f and EV numbers will be. At first I thought to apply the bellows extension concept, and I'm a little uncertain because I might be missing one physical measurement.

    If I started with 130 mm and now have 310 mm f.l, do I use (310/130)^2 or is it [(310-130)/130]^2?

    Then, I imagine the effective aperture is distorted further by the effect of an optical change (analogous to adding an accessory lens), not just the bellows extension.

    Am I on the right track, thoughtwise? Can this be measured with a lightmeter and compared to the pre-modified illumination level and have this be added to the bellows factor?

    Thank you
