I have been successful using the 16-shot pixel shift function, but with some significant post processing work on my part.

Sure, with enough work in post you can fix almost anything.

Landscapes have been extremely detailed except for some trees with wind motion. I have blended in resampled single images of the blurred trees using Photoshop, resulting in pretty amazingly detailed photos.

That's a good technique.

The front-end process reminds me of using a 4x5 view camera to do landscapes - the slow shutter speed required with slow film and f/22 or f/32 had similar wind-blur challenges!

But the artifacts that resulted weren't as ugly as the pixel shift artifacts, IMHO.
