I am trying to decide between two cameras.
Camera A took the upper picture.
Camera B took the lower picture.
I am more used to Camera B's system,
but A, it seems to me, works better with close-ups,
in keeping the object fully in focus
and blurring the background
(as opposed to Camera B,
which will do a closeup of a leaf or flower,
but often with such a shallow depth of field
that part of said leaf or flower is not fully focused.)

For instance, see how the bottom photo has a center leaf
that projected forward and therefore is blurred,
because it protruded out of the realm of the camera focus.
The top photo is further away, true, but it doesn't appear to have that problem.
