Sigma 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art Aperture Series: Focus Stacking Versus Single Frame

See my Nikon wish list and get Sigma 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art at B&H Photo.

The Sigma 14/1.8 is an outstanding lens with corner to corner sharpness, but focus stacking might be necessary to get the best out of it with near-to-far compositions, as here.

This page shows 3 exposures of the same scene, all at f/10: near focus (on the aspen trees), far focus, and a 2-frame focus stack. Discussion is about what is gained from the stack and how it addresses the challenges of lens performance (field curvature in particular) and depth of field.
