Hi Guys,
As you would all be aware, we are usually shooting close and are stopping down chasing the ever needed DOF

Are dedicated macro lenses better at handling diffraction?
Starting to appear that way with my 105 VR but my eyes are also not young any more

Or should we just accept that stacking is the only way?

I have captured some images at f22 with the 105 that still look "OK" to me but I'm guessing a trained eye would delete the image

With my "normal" lenses I'm usually at the limit at f11 and prefer f5.6 or f8 with my 2.8 lenses, my only slow lens is the 300 f4 which gets used wide open most of the time
Regards,
Gary

I used to have a photographic memory but never got it developed
