I just think it should be made a bit more clear instead of making claims that are somewhat misleading.  I do a lot of handheld close-up photography (not macro) in low light and maxing out the light is an important factor for me. That's why I got interested in this (I believe) otherwise excellent camera. I believe it's high ISO capabilities probably allows for smaller apertures at close range without major IQ toxicity.

Two questions:

a) Why are you looking at a 35mm equivalent for macro work?

b) If you are planning to use a smaller aperture at close range, why are you complaining about it not being sharp wide open?
