mFT - will diffraction be a problem with smaller lens?
Aug 10, 2008

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!)
