I bought this little camera used from LCE last year .. I have found the microscope mode combined with the focus stacking to be a nice feature especially to get shots of the tiny insects that sit on fences. The versions of the camera with focus stacking are the TG4, TG5 & TG6 I think. I suspect that a lot of people see the Olympus Tough series as novelties and for people who go diving rather than for serious use. I have never used the camera in that situation but I have found it easier to use than the focus stacking with the M4/3 cameras and lense combos that have this feature.
