But I was comparing it to the f/4 Canon which is 3 ft 9 inches at 200 and constant. Is the Canon 2.8 a constant minimum? I think I'll just get an adapter and the f/4 Canon it is about the same price. I can get over a foot closer and not have to worry about it.


If minimum focus distance at 200mm is the ONLY thing you're interested in and it's so important to you that you're willing to give up autofocus for it, why are you even looking at lenses like these?

Get a 180mm macro and be done with it. Faster. Cheaper. Focuses a lot closer.

True, they will probably eventually have a FE version of a 180 macro as well.
