Nikon D850: Validating 'Focus shift shooting' in the Field: Does it really work well?

See my Nikon wish list.

45-megapixel Nikon D850

Wanted to verify that the Nikon Focus shift shooting feature would produce optimal focus positions for autofocus lenses; some skepticism remains that the gradation is fine enough. So I put two autofocus lenses to the test: the Sigma 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art, and the Nikon 60mm f/2.8 macro.

Nikon AF-S 60mm f/2.8G Macro: Focus Stacking

The Nikon D850 Focus shift shooting feature did a very fine job with the Sigma 14/1.8. The 60/2.8—not bad but not exciting either; see my comments.

If these and other recent focus stacking images don’t persuade you that landscape photography requires it as a skill, then I’m from another planet, or you need to see an ophthalmologist.
