Anyway to overcome the soft blur look on close focus, XC35mm?

Hey there

Got my first Fuji prime, went for a cheap one and dipped my toe in the water so to speak, to see if i like them with the XC 35mm f/2, Its a lovely, small, sharp lens. The OOF areas are beautiful, too.

However, one thing i got it for was shots of my dogs from close, and really blur out the background. However, i've also tested this on inanimate objects, like a PC mouse, watch, whatever. At close focusing wide, there is a sort of blury halo. I don't put too much faith in Ken Rockwell, but i spotted the Xf35 has this same thing.

Can this be mitigated?
