Yep, that idea/mode has not slipped my radar and I indeed tend to practice with it as well. My immediate gripe with it is that we can only be privy to shots with the focus in the centre, so it massively limits our framing. However, I have been practising the brenizer method a great deal this month, excellent results can stem from just 2-3 shots being stitched. It might be I become prolific with the technique, use CIF for the first shot, then quickly (without moving the camera away from my eye), flip the AF/MF switch so that I can pan to the left or right and take a second shot (without of course adjusting focus). This way I get an almost AF like experience using a MF lens and also an additional degree of framing/composition from which to work with.
just as you two slready had conversation about it. it could be usefull to use catch focus, but it donít work in all circumstances..but it helps. Iím also drooling over FA*85...and many other lenses, but meanwhile my FA 77 will do. bokeh is not as nice as with 85, and also that little a bit more tighter Fov gives nice result for portraits. still FA 77 is not slouch.

CIF has the same issue that the Focus Confirmation has, that is it fires as SOON as you get the focus confirmation, which for some DoF is just too soon. That is if I understand all this correctly. This pic might better explain what I mean;



So CIF might be useful if the stop down is sufficient, but wide open I have my reservations slightly. Also the speed of which you turn the focus ring might also factor in, a bit faster of a rotation might mean it fires a little later, resulting in a sharper image perhaps than rotating super slow...

I once arrived there, about 1985, just in time to see a C130 painted grey flying below cliff top in that valley.

I recently took a trip to the state of Victoria ( Australia ). Got a few pics out of it that I rather enjoy. First pic taken with the DA 15mm SMC ( heavily cropped ), second with the Samyang 20mm, and the third with the Sammy 24mm. Taken on the coast around the 12 Apostles National Park.

And another few from the trip. The first was taken on Wreck Beach with the DFA 28-105 using a Hoya ND filter, the second was a sunrise from Mt Buffalo over the smoky valley, again using the DFA 28-105, and the third was taken at sunset from a vantage point on the Great Ocean Walk called Slippery Point using the Samyang 14mm - sometimes what is happening on the opposite horizon is more interesting than the main event.

+1 on that. As for the last image, don't for a moment think you will ever get an opportunity to photograph a sky such as that again. OIAL conditions, and you captured it perfectly.
