Exactly, Mr Brunner.
I was taught in school that it did exist but it wasn't a huge deal and my experiences bear me out on 6x6
When I was learning my hasselblad I routinely would stop way down to f/32 when trying to shoot architecture with the 150 Sonnar.
I noticed a 50mm Nikkor I had only went to f/16 so I figured if it was available it couldn't be too awfully detrimental.
I did know that lenses had a sweet spot but it never stopped me from using smaller apertures.
Now I shoot people mostly so I'm usually at almost wide open most of the time.
