Focus bracket

Does anyone use this successfully on the G9? I'd like to get my closeups of flowers, etc., to have more in focus. I've played around with it but am having a hard time getting results. I don't see any explanation for the "Step" parameter that makes sense. Here's what the manual says:

"Sets the interval between focus positions. The distance by which the focus position moves in each step will be shorter if the initial position is closer to a subject, and conversely if the initial position is farther from a subject, the distance will be longer."

The 1st sentence is obvious, but what are the units of the interval? The default is "2" but I don't know what that means in terms of distance. And the 2nd sentence makes no sense at all .

Anybody understand this? Thanks,

Dick
