I would think, not knowing for sure, that much finer would promote sticking to say potatoes.

The sticking won't occur at the edge or immediatly behind it. Polish the first few mm behind a convexed edge as the very edge; the blade will have a much coarser finish, something like P600 perhaps.

A 140 diamond will quickly establish a precise bevel. As Mark says, 15 degrees is about as acute as you should go for your final bevel angle. While you can go a bit past 2k or strop after 2k, the knife won't hold an edge for any appreciable period of time after 2k level of refinement. Note that a new 140 will cut VERY fast until it gets broken in. Use water with your diamond plate.
