Um, Richard, the smallest aperture that it makes sense to use depends a bit on magnification. At 1:1, the effective f/number is twice the f/number set. Since the most resolution obtainable is ~ 1500/effective, if we set the aperture to f/32 at 1:1 the best we can hope for is not much better than 20 lp/mm.
