Anyone understand what technology can do this?

"The X100S uses a Lens Modulation Optimiser to reduce optical effects such as lens diffraction, which occurs when light passes through a lens. Even when stopped down to f/16, the X100S retains sharpness and texture in the smallest details, demonstrating the extent of the sensor and lens combination’s capabilities, perfectly."

It prbably means they introduce some form of ND filter in the light path from F8 onwards. Why not just say that rather than this advertising speak...

One cannot change the laws of physics....  Diffraction cannot be 'avoided'.
