The depth of field at f1.4 to f.0 is so shallow that at close distances it is very easy to blow the shot. Even a slight movement of the body while depressing the shutter can change the focal point, been there, done that.

If I'm in really close, I go to manual focus and use my body to adjust, much as one does with macro which can only be focused manually in close.
