Well I would say at 3x they are sharp, but at 5x there is definately
some softness creeping in. Whether this is due to diffraction or
motion blur I'm not sure.
Having said that, shooting at 5x I'm just happy to get a shot in focus:

A lot of this discussion is really relative Dave -we can compute flash durations and argue motion blur all day but in the end it's the final image that counts. As long as I can get image quality like this at 5x I don't really care
