QG, when a lens is focused at infinity its rear nodal plane is one focal length from the film plane. The exit pupil can be anywhere, as long as its in front of the film plane. This is one definition of focal length.
Do you agree that the relationship between magnification, focal length, and extension, defined as the distance between the lens' rear nodal plane and the film plane, is e = f * (m +1)?
There is a convention, and I think you follow it. PM = exit/entrance.
