G1XII f/2.0: Macro vs. longer distance

While running my G1XII through its paces I saw for myself the effect of using the widest aperture at close range (~5 - 10 cm).  At this range, it seems f/4 is a maximum.  I've seen some mention of this in my reading.  But, what I haven't found yet is any info on a "safe" working distance for f/2.  Is there a subject distance for which I can expect much crisper focus?
