Above F8 and you start losing resolution with an APSC sensored camera. F11 for full frame.

Hi Daniel, I was sure that once I learn something from You, too.

Following your hint, I found a perfect source that explained the diffraction concepts clearly

I found another interesting white paper to read http://www.metabones.com/assets/a/stories/Speed%20Booster%20White%20Paper.pdf

Handheld no-image-stabilized manual-focused legacy telephoto taken with Nikon AI 180mm on Speed Booster. Magnified into this photo, I am still not convinced that you can capture more details with any Fujinon lens than with this 300-Euro legacy lens.

Take care and have fun, Miki
