    you need a little overlap, say 20-30%, between the in-focus slabs of adjacent frames

    DOF Estimates For Macro/Micro
    on DOF and Step Size
Mitutoyo is specifying single-sided DOF = maximum deviation from the plane of sharpest focus, as opposed to the two-sided DOF that we want for focus stacking and is computed by Nikon
So what step size should you use? Well, it depends. If you plan to stack using PMax, then you can get a sharper rendering "out of the box" by using a smaller step and letting PMax do some sharpening for you as a side effect. Or if stack depth is important, you can take Nikon's smallest number and cut it back by 20% or so to be sure of not missing anything.

    Stackshot and 1 micron steps: - bottom of initial post
When scrolling through images there is consistent evidence of nutation [nodding] from frame to frame. It's very consistent: one frame slightly to the left and the other back again. So consistent that away from the centre and perpendicular to the direction of nutation the trails from "stuck pixels” in the stack form two parallel tracks like this:
