As far a exposure bracketing goes, is it normal to only bracket 1/3 f stops? I would think that bracketing a full stop would make more sense.
It doesn't; far too coarse. With full stops, you run the risk to go from too much underexposed to too much overexposed. With 1/2 or 1/3 eV steps, you have a better chance that one of your shots is perfect.

1/3 stops depends on your eV step. My camera is set up for 1/2 eV steps and bracket 5 shots.
