mFT - will diffraction be a problem with smaller lens?

Just curious since the lens' will be smaller, won't more detail per mm be required of the glass... and as such, will diffraction be more of a problem than with full size fourthirds lens'?

Already with fourthirds, I find flash photography a bit of a problem as slow sync speeds require me to to to f16 or so to balance light levels outdoors.

Right now I find f12 where I like to stop if I want lots of detail, if that's pushed back f8 or bigger, this would be a significant disadvantage for mFT.

(by the way, I'm really looking forward to mFT!)
