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.

What do you want to say here?

Focus bracketing (shifting focus slightly in front and byond the focus point)?

Focus bracketing (taking a series of photos between closer and further focus points)?

Focus bracketing (bracketing and stacking the images in camera)?

This is all about focus bracketing.

Or from micro4/3 forum, have a look at this.

But that image sensor is tiny and the images are noisy compared to FF images.

There are lots more examples and discussions of focus bracketing on other camera forums.

Note that it was done handheld.

Just like what can be done with a Sony. Hand hold, take a series of photos while focusing.

That is how the creative ones find a way.

Those who want the camera to do everything automatically are completely lost.

Sony do have focus bracketing and stacking software for professional users. They add a computer and get professional results - no flaws and no artefacts.

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