I do see diffraction at f/16.

I know that mathematically there will be more diffraction effects with a closer pixel pitch.

This is basic optical physics.

all other worlds are mere illusions.

I posted examples of diffraction with a 16 mp sensor. Would you mind doing the same from the E-PL1?

Unfortunately, well actually fortunately I deleted those photo right after taking them because the problem was obvious even on the E-pl1 LCD screen.  It is especially evident at f/22 with close ups on the 17mm lens.  Open up to f/11 and the problem is gone.

I first noticed it when I was doing a close up of the shot of my lens collection in my Tedolph's Mighty Arsenal Album in my Gallery.  Then I noticed it again in some foliage test shots I was doing becuase I was looking for it.

I would also be interested in comments on the "background haze" in my samples. I have the same scene in f/11 if that is helpful.

Well, we need a comparison between the two cameras-same lens, same settings, same scene with some significant OOF background areas preferable with some speculare highlights.

If anyone can do that test it would be much appreciated.
