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.

I think this lens is more orientated towards sports and portraiture. Close focusing zooms would suffer bad AF. This one is just not made for macro. Even though I would prefer and most likely get the A mount version it's not a deal breaker.

True,  I agree a good suggestion to look at the A mount version for the type shooting this lens might be intended for.  The A mount is also a stop faster?
