Another poster let us see their pictures taken at f22 which were rather stunning.

I tend to shoot at f8 or a lot wider but rarely the other way except when using macro lens.

I just wondered what people use f11 and above for other than macro. Examples would be great.

I use what I need for the DOF I need. I'd rather give up some sharpness to have what I want to look in focus, look in focus.

I also find that depending on the lens, sometimes there isn't a massive drop in sharpness. some are definitely worse than others.
