Abysmal= extremely bad no I do not think so.

The lens @ F 2.0 is very sharp. Try a shot on a tripod shooting words on a page.  It is great. The issue is depth of field.  I suspect the op needs to revisit lenses 101.  If you want a macro with a very wide dof you need to merge multiple exposures in photoshop.

Btw the X 100s does suck shooting at night @ ISO 200 stopped down to F16, handheld while riding a bike. It is almost useless in that situation. Until Fuji comes up with a firmware download to address the situation I would not recommend it.

...revisiting Lenses 101 uh?

The issue has nothing to do with depth of field at f2, but rather with very strong spherical aberration.

Something else, I specifically mentioned close range as opposed to macro in my OP. Again, check definitions in your lenses 101 text book.

As for the rest of you post, try "Being Funny for Dummies".

oh, oh PhotonTrapper is working on another of the infamous DP Review food fights!   Something certainly is 'Abysmal' but it might not be photographic.
