Grateful for greater DOF of M4/3: more often (landscapes, macro)

I've yet to run into a situation where f/16 on FF (f/8 on mFT) wasn't "enough" DOF for a landscape. Beyond that DOF, diffraction softening would begin to be an issue, of course. For example:

For those that need detailed photos with such deep DOFs, the way to go is either focus stacking or TSE lenses.  While there are TSE lenses for both FF and APS-C, there are none yet for mFT, so, ironically enough, that results in the larger formats having the deep DOF advantage.

Personally, I'm rather surprised that there are no TSE lenses for mFT yet, and I should hope that there are plans to release at least one in the near future (a 12 / 2.8 TSE would probably be quite a hit!).
