In that case I guess it's best to rename the f-number label as proposed, but 
remove the APEX aperture value from the interface.

If we really want though, we can get EV values: Adding the required fields to 
compute EV values to the exif database can be done similarly as the gps data 
in a way that doesn't occur a cost to people that don't use the feature.
