Going from a negative size of 9.2mm to the following sizes, the exposure factor correction in stops is:

Size......Magnification...Metered...Formula...DA Ruler
11mm ...1.2
21mm ...2.3...............1.1..........1.1.........1.3
32mm ...3.4...............2.0..........2.0.........2.0
45mm ...4.9...............2.8..........2.9.........2.8

The ruler and the formula should provide identical results as the ruler is based on the same optical formula - I am not sure where the discrepancy arrises at the 21mm image size. Apart from that they all seem to agree within experimental and rounding error.
I have been following this thread with interest and thanks for posting.
I may have missed something but you are talking here of images in millimetre sizes and this seems really small, can you elaborate please?
