What's the difference between z_i and z_s? Looking at the diagram, I would have thought that z_i is the diagram focus because that's where the lines converge.

Z_I is the distance where the Blur Circle of Diameter C is in the focused object plane, while Z_S is the distance where the same Blur Circle is an unfocused virtual image.

I don't really understand the part of zs, where does that equation come from?
