I just read the minimum focus distance is nearly 5 feet at the 200mm end and it varies by focal length? Most other 70-200s I've seen have a constant minimum. e.g., Canon 70-200 f/4 L IS is about 45 inches regardless of focal length. It gave me pause on a 1500$ lens I'll just say that. Anyone else notice (or care).

The minimum focus distance is 1 meter (3.28 feet). The Canon 70-200 f4L IS minimum focus distance is 1.2 meters (3.94 feet).

Better check your stats as it varies by focal length and by 200mm it is 59 inches or 5 feet for field purposes.
