Re: Frozen webs and Aperture question

I read that above F11 with E-system lenses, diffraction starts to play a part but I'd welcome refs to some (intelligible) source material on that.

Once you've reached the max DOF you can get without diffraction, the only way to get more of a target in focus AFAIK is to zoom out / walk back / use shorter focal length so that the object is smaller in the frame. This is one situation where, if you then have to crop in, it helps to have....... more pixels!

Or there is focus-stacking software but it's awfully fiddly to set up shots and with a tripod, and I think suitable only for macros in controlled circumstances.

Or are there other ways?
