No, was talking about focussing not zooming. The 50-300 and 200-400 MF have no IF. The other effect of this is that when you put a hood on the lens the weight of it exerts downward pressure and so makes the focussing even heavier. I had a Leica 105-280 that had the same problem, otherwise a gorgeous lens.
