I know Terry has actually done that update. As he actually has the E620, if diffraction & shutter speed are not going to fix all, then he can always adjust the AF setting for that lens (if needed) in the Menu, but Ian's advice should be applied first.

Edit: The f22 is probably the biggest issue with these two photos, from a slow shutter speed & some by diffraction, but on seeing some of the other photos of Terry's recently, the aperture was f11 & they were still a little soft.

I would suggest Terry, that it is better to lose some DoF to gain a faster shutter speed & maybe f5.6 might still have been OK, & increase to f8 if not.
