I have used focus stacking with my x-pro 1, you have to manually adjust the focus step and collect the images.  for focus stacking I have been using Helicon and Zerene stacker. I like Zerene a bit better than Helicon, it is cheaper, editing the stack is a little more intuitive. It is written by a guy who was not happy with helicon. For me Zerene gives fewer background artifacts in the out of focus areas than Helicon. I would convert to tif and then stack. Helicon and Zerene both work well and both have trial periods. here is test shot using the x-pro and focus stacking on some orchids:
