Alternatively just use a tripod, A mode and f/22

Not with a crop sensor camera - the whole frame will be softened by diffraction so none of it will be very sharp. This is a typical resolution chart for a 1.5 crop sensor.

For this particular lens f/5.6 will give ample DOF for many situations and give twice the resolution of f/22.

focus to infinity, hit the self-timer, and you're good.
