F-Number is another term for F-Stop. An F-Number is used to designate the size of the aperture (opening) in a lens. The larger the F-Stop number, the smaller the opening in the lens.  The F-Stop is usually shown as f/number (ex: f/8) – where the 8 is a number consistent from lens to lens based on the focal length.
