Re: RX100: "Artistic" blur in macro shots? Help!

Mine does the same. It looks like spherical abberation, and stopping down to 2.8 or below gets rid of the halos. I imagine that lens designers had to compromise somewhere. Spherical aberration is very well corrected at normal distances (where you are likely to use f/1.8) but poorly corrected at macro distances, where most people want to stop down for more DOF.
