Handling of new 80-400 zoom lens

Per the specs, the new 80-400 nikon lens is 0.5 lbs (20%) heavier and 1.3 inches (20%) longer.

A video on Scott Kelby's website showed someone handling a D7100 with the new lens attached. It looked like the combination would be unbalanced and more difficult to handhold than a D300s with a similar lens attached. Like others, I hope Nikon makes a D400 in a size similar to the D300s dimensions. Perhaps its just me, but I have a D7000 and hate how it handles with longer zooms attached.
