the question I'd have regarding focus coupling: does the 0.7/0.58m figures come from the cam actually "ending" at 0.7m? I hated that feature on the f/1.7 lens which went even further.
It always gave me a feeling of uncertainty when focusing close.
why don't they add a removable screw for all those digital shooters?
Should be ending at 0.58m for hyperfocal/live view use. I hate it too, since it messes up the focus throw and hampers my ability to focus by feel.

Hope...just hope the production version offers a no frills 0.7m minimum distance, or at least a "dent" at the end of the coupled range like the Nikkor-H 50/2. The live view crowd can have their E-mount lenses.
