It definitely isn't sharp at f2 ... and yet, you can use that with intent.

With this review of the X100 where I second-shot a wedding, the softness and bit of flare at f2 was perfect for the detail shots.

So, once you realize what you're getting, you can stay at f4 or smaller for sharper images ... or purposely go to f2 for effect.
