Explaining Diffraction

Sadly a lot of you are going to view this video and use it as an excuse to focus stack. But as a macro photographer who routinely shoots single frames with a macro lens stopped down to F16 this video reconfirms what I've been saying for years -diffraction is not the devil that the macro community has made it out to be...

There are so many factors that can impact image sharpness that blaming all of the softness in your photos on diffraction, IMHO, shows a great deal of inexperience.
