"I don't have any good measurements on the 200-600 at its MFD. At a "normal" working distance of 8670mm (according to EXIF) I measured an actual focal length of 628mm.

EXIF is probably not sufficiently precise. I measure this myself and came to ca 560mm for such a distance using a ruler to establish distances. I've read multiple accounts of knowledgeable camera nerds having similar results (when focused close).
