I was interested until I saw the minimum focusing distance.

I often find myself shooting near the minimum focusing distance with my Panasonic 100-400mm and I sometimes wish could get even closer. The difference between 1.3m and 6m is huge and such a long MFD is very limiting.

For me it would mean carrying that lens for birds at a distance, then switching to something else to photograph flowers/fungi or butterflies and dragonflies.
