Re: Nope, consider the size of the image area.

The D300 is currently right about at the diffraction limit
for f8, at apertures smaller than this the image sensor actually out
resolves the lenses. With the D3, the diffractiion limit is probably
in the range of f11 to f14 because of the larger image area.

The D300 becomes diffraction limited at about f/11 and the D3 at about f/16-18.
