Re: FZ200 Diffraction Limit - Panasonic Tech Service

So in summary, all of this theory was to say that the lens and sensor combination of the FZ200 is diffraction limited to around F3.5.  At higher stop values, fine details (resolution) begins to taper off due to diffraction of light due to the aperture blades.  Does that sum it up properly?

If that's the case, how is it possible to get a long depth of field without loss of resolution with any bridge camera?  Granted, a bridge camera isn't designed specifically for landscapes and architectural shots, it does seem to do a pretty good job of them by what I've seen.   I suppose that it is fair to say that in such wide angle shot, fine detail resolution is far less important anyway.
