There is nothing that needs to be fixed?

If I want to focus stack - I'll do it. I don't need the camera to do it for me.

Seriously, how is THAT a feature that determines whether one purchases a particular camera or not? That would be so far down on my want-list from a camera it would need a stepladder just to see the undersides of my ankles.

I think you are making the same mistake that many others made when discussing this earlier. You appear not to understand the difference between focus stacking and auto focus bracketing. They are not the same thing at all. The penny now seems to be dropping and Sony users are beginning to look at images (you will also  find examples in this thread, that show what auto focus bracketing can do.

Or from micro4/3 forum, have a look at this. There are lots more examples and discussions of focus bracketing on other camera forums.

Note that it was done handheld.

I mainly shoot landscapes. I'd love to have been able to take this shot with my Sony.
