It's part of the lens design. The price we pay for such a compact design is residual spherical aberration. At f/4 it's pretty much gone and its not a problem at all at normal working distances. Same as the x100 of course.

I agree 100%.  This lens is not designed to be sharp at f/2.  If it were, the lens would be a lot larger and much more expensive.  The X100s is about the same cost as a Zeiss Biogon (M mount) 35mm. The Biogon is  much sharper wide open at f/2, but then you still need to shell out for a body.

Sadly that is the case. I wish I could just mount a biogon to my forehead!
