X100S with LH-X100 lens hood w/adapter ring: Does the X100S lens hit slim filter when in macro mode?

I ordered the Fujifilm LH-X100 lens hood w/adapter ring, and a B+W 49mm Clear Slim MRC 007M Filter to go with it.

I've seen mention of the lens possibly hitting the back of the filter when in macro mode. For example, in this review of the X100 by André Östergård, he states:

"Be careful when you buy a filter for this camera not to pic a slim filter because that will not work when the camera is in macro mode. The lens will hit the filter and make the camera stall and shut down.

Is this still true with the X100S? Will the slim B+W filter be a problem as far as the lens hitting the back of the filter when in macro mode? If so, is there a specific B+W filter that you've used that you know does not exhibit this problem?
