Rik Littlefield, the author of a great stacking program, Zerene, talks about the choice here: https://www.zerenesystems.com/cms/stacker/docs/troubleshooting/ringversusrail

Short summary: It depends.

I've had great luck using the focus motor for stacking with my 100mm macro.

Hi Ken,

Thanks for your response. The link is interesting and I had heard of Zerene.

It does seem like it depends.

Well that is OK, at the moment I don't have any software to stack with, I will probably buy Affinity Photo soon and that will enable me to have a go.  I have seen some very nice photos recently achieved with focus stacking so I do want at some point to have a go.
