I still think you should revise that article to clarify those sizes. When you show 1/2.8" as being "9.1mm" (even though that's of course correct for the overall chip size), it may tend to lead the partially-informed user to conclude, "Well, I know I read that a 1/3" chip is really 6mm, so that there 1/2.8 is WAY bigger at 9.1mm!"
I know you explain it in the text, but this is such a frequent and constant area of discussion that any opportunity to clarify should be taken.
If fact, when I saw that 9.1mm, at a glance, I thought, "What?!" for a moment, and I know better.
