X100 close focusing without switching to macro: OVL vs EVL

In my post http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/readflat.asp?forum=1020&thread=37882718 I mentioned one negative feature of the X100 is the relatively long non-marcro focus range: officially starts at 80cm although I'm getting around 70cm.

This is in OVF mode but I've discovered switching from OVF to EVF, I can consistently focus on objects down to around 30cm with switching to macro mode.

Looks like Fuji is being cautious (parallax concerns) in OVF mode.
