Try it! Results are more than mearly acceptable but exceptional! Acceptional
covers it I'm adding it to my spell check! 
It's how lots of folks take pictures, the body of famous shots you've seen and
admired over the decades were not all taken by focussing at one point and
getting that in focus. Plenty of them were done by getting a range of stuff in
focus. If your needs are higher as your are going to blow your prints up bigger
line up you needs in between the f8's as you shoot at f11! Or more so!

OF course half the people here are into wide upon shooting and more power too
them it's not my thing so much.

It is when it's dark and i dont have a tripod or flash.
