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.

You're making the same mistake many others have made - thinking there's some fundamental difference.

* One image is a focus stack.

* The other image is... a focus stack under a different name.

The only difference is when and how the stack is created.

If you're referring to the fact that it was handheld well, almost every focus stack I've ever done was shot handheld. I've got focus stacks handheld of wildlife.

Is it a nice feature to have? Sure. No question.

Is it the feature that decides a camera purchase or a straight-up brand switch?

Pffft. No.

No, you seem not to understand the difference between focus bracketing and focus stacking. I don't know why the difference between these two terms alludes so many. Focus bracketing refers to shooting exposures of a composition with each photo focused at a different part of the scene. Focus stacking is the combination of a series of focus bracketed photos into one photo, in which all parts of the scene are acceptably in-focus (or, more accurately, acceptably out-of-focus).
