Re: The real world.....

My feeling (and it is a "feeling", rather than hard Science!) is that whatever purely optical issue causes less sharpness @ higher f/numbers is impossible (in practice, for somebody working with a camera) to separate from the diffraction softness. The reason a lens resolution peaks @ f/5.6 is that for higher values we start to see the effects of diffraction, more and more.

But I agree with others: if necessary, close down the lens, the effect of diffraction is not that noticeable (see ulfric's images, for example).
