Nonsense.

But with that price tag attached to it, I am a bit surprised this machine can't even shoot at f/2 when the subject is at 1-2 feet.

Nonsense. The abberation at f2 appears between 1/3 and 1 feet. At 1-2 feet it's very low, at 2 feet it's gone. Saying that it "can't shoot" it's just unwise. You could jokingly say, perhaps, that for extreme close-ups it's equipped with a softar filter, but for me it's a good thing for portraits. And even when it's stopped down to f4 (to get rid of abberations) the depth of field is still paper-thin for these distances.
