Thanks. But did you read what he said about size & weight?...

With the built-in extender, I fully expect this lens to be at least as large as and even heavier than the Nikon 200-400. The Nikon lens is 4.88 x 14.37” (124 x 365mm) and weighs 7.4 lbs (3360g). While handholdable for very short periods of time, the Nikon 200-400 is more fun to use from a monopod or a tripod. /

Heavier than 7.4 lbs? If true, it might be a deal-breaker for me.
