Almost all images I see made with this lens are wide open or close to that Does anyone use apertures much above 5.6?

F16 seems OK, but at f22 diffraction kicks in

Also note that sensor dust becomes more visible when stopping down. Personally my highest practical aperture is f/8 and the exeption is f/11 when DOF have priority.

Do always use a blower on the sensor before those exclusive f/16 moments.
