I haven't done too much macro shooting with this camera, but a good friend of mine is interested. He's got the X100 but he's quite new to digital. I'm going to ask him for some more details on what his challenges are, but in the meantime I wanted to ask you all who are into macro how you use the camera. I know that Ray explained how he uses the X100: Does anyone else use the Macro icon with auto focus and if so - do you find that using f/4 is the way to go? I feel as though I've read something about that somewhere. My friend seemed to say that he was having trouble seeing the auto focus working and he definitely had the lens wide open. He was using the LCD and when he would try to focus the camera would go in, focus but then go past what he was focusing on and then come back out and everything would be blurry. He is, as I said, very new to digital. He is not new to photography, however.
