Image below has been considerably improved from the dulling effects of diffraction by using the technique described in Mitigating Micro Contrast Losses from Diffraction Blur.

As resolution increases, sharpening technique is especially critical for stopped down apertures; Leica S images go visibly less crisp by f/9.5 due to diffraction, and by f/11 on the image is greatly affected.
