Up to now I have resisted the Photoshop way of going, where focus stacking could work. Normally I have only 1 or 2 seconds to compose focus and frame my subject, so stacking is not a choice. Experiments with zoom lenses has shown it is possible to get good results if the lighting is up to scratch, so I am considering a 2.8-200mm zoom as an option. Any one tried this before I commit 1500 to the subject.
    Hi Mike
    Sorry to hear your problems, this hobby can be a pain and expensive. 1500 seems a lot, 123 Photographs (123 Photographs.co.uk) have a second hand Nikon 105mm 2.8 D series for 349, they also do a 7 day return if not satisfied. I bought mind from them (same model as just mentioned) and was over the moon with it. I also bought another item from them, was not happy with it and had no problems with returning it and getting a refund. Sorry can't offer any technical advice.
