You have to make sure that you are at least 80cm away, a single person head and shoulders will place you too close for normal focusing.

Yes - the official 'macro mode' did seem the actual close-up limit at one time but firmware 1.3 seems to have reduced relative close-up - i.e. people/group shots - 'accuracy' (for want of a better word) in favour of wider overall AF efficiency/speed.

Only my opinion/experience - simply more misses in this range since last FW upgrade.

I'd reinforce the 'hit the button rather than wait' approach too - in general photography the X100 is happy to shoot when it finds a focus ... rather than indicate it! A very quirky little b***er!
