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.

Over at the Canon R forum there have been several examples with the focus bracketing feature those bodys have, for instance this thread: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4589206
The images at the bottom of the long list of very nice images the OP post are stacked (see under each image in the text where it stands if it is a stack or not, you need to scroll down quite much to come to the stacked ones).

Also interesting that the Canon 100 mm macro shows it magnification level in the live view.

When I put my camera in Manual mode, why don't I get any instructions?
