Fun Fstoppers example


example is well taken, but that's under optimal conditions, not under real world use in the wild, where I think it'll be a much bigger issue.

Even in the real world...diffraction isn't often a major practical detractor at f11 and 800mm/600mm. Even when a camera system is near or just past its diffraction limit, other factors such as focus accuracy and motion blur  likely to be far more significant. And have to check my math but on FF I don't think the new f11 primes would be diffraction limited until after f22 on FF

My opinions are my own and not those of DPR or its administration. They carry no 'special' value (except to me and Lacie of course)
