Hyper focal distance versus maximum focus distance before infinity

by user71523   Last Updated January 14, 2018 05:18 AM

I have a Sigma 18-35 1.8 sigma lens. The latest number on the distance scale of this lens is 2m. At subjects further than 4.22m the lens focusses at the infinity mark. The exif data confirms this, as it seems that any object further than 4.22m has focussing distance 4.22m in the exif data.

I was now wondering about the following. Clearly, the hyper focal distance at 35mm,1.8F is a lot further than 4.22m. Shouldn't the maximum distance focus distance, before the lens reaches infinity, not be beyond the hyper focal distance?
