Thanks for the replies. It seems, then, that there is little use in stopping down to f/22 or so unless your composition includes a subject quite close to the lens (5 to 10ft).

Asher and Doug, would you suggest any literature about optics resolution, and particularly hyperfocal technique etc... It is something that has always interested me. And I am working with film right now, so unfortunately I don't have the digital luxury of multiple exposure techniques.

Jerome, I find that the images get noticeable softer in the edges when stopped down. I assume they're also less sharp in the center region, but I haven't done any empirical trials of side-by-side images.
