Hi Paul -

I think that thread, and others on DPR, claim that the S100 is relatively free of diffraction up to f4.0, which is the aperture a previous contributor (not me) recommended in this thread.

Also - I wonder if diffraction isn't less of a problem than people often state. I've seen it in a few of my images, but much more often I've "gotten away with" using a higher f stop and still had a successful image as a result.

Yeah, I agree, just another reference to it.

Diffraction (within the range that the camera actually allows) is certainly overhyped a lot of times - you have to get to f8.0 to even be able to see it most of the time...
