Thom Hogan talks about airy diffraction, and as the pixel density increases so does the airy diffraction. For each camera body he gives an f-stop at which airy diffraction causes images to start to become soft. For example airy diffraction is slightly worse for the D300 than for the D200 and worse for the D7000 than the D300. This what concerns me.
For example airy diffraction is noticeable at f/13 for the D200, f/11 for the D300 and f/9 for the D7000, but only f/16 for the D700. I believe this is for images all printed at the same size (although I don't know what the size is).
