    The latest stuff I'm refering to are Sony's latest 20+ mpxl (look at NEX 7)wonder children and the expected 30+ Mpxl cameras the majors are releasing in this season. Sensors are the equivalent to the MF digi back we're all up in arms about over at Lum Lanscape.

    Amazing to me when the 12 mpxl cameras are now the large pixel sensor types.

    My first digital at work was 11 microns and it was crappy. Useful for web was about all.

    Moving target, but film is still better..

    Ah, well yes 20+ APS-C cameras are going to be worse, and I've heard Nikon's next camera may be 36mp on FX...but anyway, that's why I buy primes for my digital!!

I pretty much only shoot at f22 out of habit but have read several posts that say f16 is far sharper at the plane of focus if fine detail in that area is critical. Would this be true?
    Just do some tests for own information. Get a resolution chart, and run some tests. You may find that your lens has a real sweet spot. Remember to put charts in the center, and also at the edges. You don't have to figure out the exact LP/mm, just figure out where your lens is sharpest, and how it handles things towards the edges.

    That's all.

    Thanks all. I might do the test target thing regardless of diffraction testing as I've swapped my ground glass and fresnel and need to test focus accuracy. Good times ahoy...
