Just to add one data point. For people who are concerned about diffraction limits, what matters in macro shooting is the effective aperture, not the physical aperture. So if you stop down to the aperture just before diffraction effects become noticeable in shooting at infinity, and then shoot at 1:1 using the same physical/marked aperture, you will be losing IQ to diffraction (since your effective aperture is 2 stops less than the marked aperture).
