My interests in seeing how much use I can get out of a fixed 35 mm (equivalent) lens pushed me to try using the Leica X2 to get close-ups of flowers, etc. The problems with using such a camera this way are that it doesn’t focus as close as I would like nor does it always focus quickly on the object I chose. With those short-falls in mind, I experimented to see what I could get. The above are some results using an aperture of F2.8 as close as I could get it to focus. I then cropped some to get these images. Keep in mind that some of these flowers are small.
