Imagine a picture that you take where you have a wide view and close view, a telescopic view, and every distance is in focus. No picture is ever out of focus and every scene was captured.
That actually sounds pretty neat. Although half my photos I do the opposite and purposely blur the background haha.

You could do that in post processing like cellphones do, or there may be a raw file of one of those lenses that took that picture. This kind of shows what you can do with the raw data.

That's clearly a Supra with some Nissan design thrown at it.

Swingline edition?

To me, it looks like a staple remover.

yes and no. i believe Lexus has the 2021 IS as a facelift rather than calling it a new gen like Nissan has done with the 350z, 370z, and upcoming "400z". however, Nissan has done a little more work with each Z by at least giving each of them new interiors, different wheelbase, and so on. the IS on the other is basically a new skin over the old car with revised suspension and a lightly updated interior. thats the current world we live in, aka survival of the niche product.

Given the other alternatives at various points included a Z crossover or no new Z at all, a reskinned Z with updated interior and turbo 3.0 is a pretty good outcome.
