Interested in the FE 70-200 but

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).

Cheers.
