You could also try manual focus with focus stacking, but that's rather laborious.

I was going to mention that. I've done dozens of focus stacked images, and yes it can be tedious, esp. when your technique is not quite right. I usually shoot them at f/5 or so, and take maybe 20 images using a rail. The benefit is that everything you want to be in focus is in focus, and everything  else is OOF:
