Re: Focus Shift Shooting - can we end the guesswork?

For macro - like most people I just give up on understanding the settings. I set the step size to 1, select 50 images, do AF on a card held in front of the subject, and blast away. Usually 50 is more than enough. Depending on the background, it might or might not stop before 50.

I haven't tried it for landscape, because I totally don't know what it's doing in that situation, which is sad because it's no doubt powerful.

Someday, maybe, Nikon will release that 105mm Z-mount macro lens they keep teasing. And that might drive interest in Z for macro, and pressure Nikon to properly explain this feature - or maybe even do a serious and useful UI for it.
