I've volunteered to photograph a very extensive butterfly collection. I plan to use my D600 + Nikon 105 VR lens. Has anyone any experience or suggestions?

Is IQ still good at F22 or is there a significant impact from diffraction with this combination?

I'm thinking of using a colour corrected led ring light... will this work OK? If so, should I use even lighting or offset to render more "depth" to the images?

As the collection numbers well over 10,000; throughput speed is important. Thanks in advance for your advice!

Only have experience shooting live ones.  Are you shooting one at a time or more than one?  You probably want F16 because quality does fall off at F22 unless you are needing the extra DOF.  Are you shooting off a wall or table top?
