Re: Diffraction Limits?

That may be, but for someone who is not an artist but technical photographer (me) there is an ongoing war between DoF and diffraction, especially in situations that prevent focus stacking. YMMV.

My point would apply quite well to this situation.  DOF is due to the geometrical relationship of the subject to the lens opening.  Diffraction is proportional to the ratio of light wavelength to lens opening.  The tradeoffs you need to make are determined by what goes in front of the lens, not what is behind it.
