2 questions to users of the Voigtlander Nokton 40mm 1.2

I shoot a lot at 40mm, and my current Nokton 40mm 1.4 MC needs some servicing. One option is to simply sell it as is, and get the newer 1.2 40mm instead.

However, there are two details that I am not totally sure about:

  • The 1.2 goes down to 50cm, but the rangefinder only goes to 70cm. What happens in the rangefinder once I focus from 1m to 70cm to below 70cm? Will the patch stop moving and get stuck at the 70cm spot? Or something else? (my camera has no live view, so this is important!)
  • What is the focus throw from 1m to infinity? And from 70cm to 2m? I shoot a lot of candids with 40mm, so speed is important. However, some reviews consider it long whereas others consider it short.
