You may hove something there.  Going through my G1X Macro shots, I don't think any were taken at f/2.8.  Even without Closeup Filters, the typical shot I have taken seems to be around f/5.0
I still feel that there's something artificial going on with the backgrounds which blends into the foreground images.  I would hope that this is something that can be turned off.
