Not necessarily true, one can get around the diffraction limit using a metamaterial lens. Although from what I understand, they have not (publicly) been able to do this at the visible or near infrared part of the spectrum yet.

"The first superlens (2004) with a negative refractive index provided resolution three times better than the diffraction limit and was demonstrated at microwave frequencies.[4] In 2005, the first near field superlens (which exceeded the diffraction limit) was demonstrated by N.Fang et al., but the lens did not rely on negative refraction. Instead, a thin silver film was used to enhance the evanescent modes through surface plasmon coupling."
