This argument is made, but rarely if ever is actually shown in lenses, particularily when it comes to long focal length lenses where the deciding factor beyond the focal length is more than likely the max aperture of the lens.

That extra reach of the 70-400G is worth it and it's a lightweight for long tele.

My Tamron 400mm f4 weighs 5 lbs! But it's still usable, I've even used it handheld!

The 70-400G is obviously an outstanding lens but is simply out of my price range.
