As opposed to all those other 28-35mm macro lenses with much longer MFDs? I mean, it's not like focal length is inversely related to MFD for a macro lens, or anything like that, right? Poor, uninnovative Canon, damn them for not being able to change the laws of optical physics. Or maybe it's just that you don't understand the relevant concepts... :
Possibly people who don't grasp the important distinction between MFD and working distance, and the fact that a lens that physically extends as you focus closer affects only the more practically relevant of those two specifications.
