One frame from a D800E suffers no more from diffraction than one frame from a D3s at any given aperture.

Yes, if both frames cover the same FOV.

No, if the D800E frame covers 3x the subject area; it will need a wider aperture.

  • If it is required that diffraction softening is to be kept constant at the subject in absolute linear measure, i.e., not proportional to FOV.
