"Diffraction limit", "dynamic range", "well size", etc...

I'd like to remind everyone that we have had sensels that small for some time now on smaller sensors, in particular the 4/3 kind but also the D7000. While measurements show that indeed degradation of the MTF happens over f/5.6, in practical photographic usage f/11 looks very much the same as f/5.6.

Of course, compact or video cameras use even smaller sensels. They often use a neutral gray filter in place of a diaphragm because the influence of diffraction quickly shows. But we are not there yet.
