Plus, focus breathing shouldn't be an issue in this lens class anymore... didn't we go through several generations to get rid of it?
Little bonus in the Nikon: they claim it's parfocal.
Nikon's 1st 70-200mm had narrowing (the good kind) focus breathing. The issue started with the II version (widening FOV at MFD). The 70-200mm f4 had narrowing focus breathing, as does the AF-S 70-200mm f2.8 FL VR.
No Canons had the widening FOV at MFD.... Till this new RF lens.
So yes, Nikon got rid of it, but Canon just now introduced it.
