New Full Frame User Depth of Field Observation

Seems like I'm going to have to get used to using smaller apertures than I use on my micro 43 bodies when I need more depth of field.  I knew that was going to be an issue because one of the plusses of full frame is shallower depth of field, which isn't always desired!

We're told that beyond f/8 on a micro43 you will get image degradation from diffraction.

What's the story about diffraction on the Sony A7iii and what's the safest, smallest aperture to use before you lose quality?
