MFT and diffraction blur when shooting landscapes
Oct 4, 2012

Hi, I got my first MFT camera, an E-PL3 a few weeks ago. With this camera for the first time I approached the rich field of landscape photography. Since you want as much sharpness from front to back as you can get, I used a tripod and chose aperture values from f11 (in automatic landscape mode) to f22 (in A mode).

I found myself hard-pressed to realize a difference in sharpness no matter which aperture value above f11 I use and I wonder what the reason may be. Has this something to do with this diffraction blur issue?

Thanks for comments.
