70-200 f4VR focus breathing?

Hi,

I just replaced a 70-200 f2.8 mkII for a 70-200f4 VR to save weight.

What I'm seeing when I compose and then adjust focus is significant shift in focal length that I never saw on the 2.8 (or my 24-70 2.8). I would say the change is 10-15% of image size....this means I can't shoot focus stacks.

Is this normal for this lens?

Thanks, Paul
