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).


Sorry but I don't see why you're getting hung up over using a telephoto lens at 5 feet?  I mean it's like using a wide-angle lens at 24mm and complaining that it's rubbish at distance shots.

Lens design is always a compromise.
