D800 f11???? Waste of time? Question for dpreview
Mar 20, 2012

The Nikon samples from dpreview look amazing but I just wish they hadn't taken the photos at f11. With that much resolution, diffraction surely comes into play? It seems like a bit of a waste of time to me. I want to see them at f8 or wider. Oh well.

Time moves on in terms of resolution, might the old benchmark of f11 be now antiquated? Will dpreview still be taking photos at f11 when we have 50mp cameras?

I am not criticizing this brilliant brilliant website btw, I could be totally wrong, I would just like to know if their methodology is now out of date?
