The dichotomy of juxtaposition

Ignore the title, that's just a hook

I can't help but wonder at the comments I read on Facebook and other such places.

We've just got Focus BKT and Focus Stk that provide for effectively a greater depth of field, especially useful in close and macro work.

Why would anyone moan about it not being implemented on the 7-14 The DoF on that lens is huge, and a bit of hyperfocal distance gets as much in focus as you could ever ask for...

It's perhaps a good thing that the latest batch of f/0.9 lenses are MF, as they would be moaning that the limited DoF is being defeated by the stacking.

It's the internet. Apparently, only unhappy people ever use the internet.

I'm very happy, I've effectively just got a new camera.

Just a reminder: DOF is a function of aperture and magnification, nothing else.

Stacking is about combining multiple planes of focus at wide aperture.

A book of faces - y'know, the funny sort that show a face upside down as well as the right way up.
