Are new lenses getting too: heavy, wide and long?
Apr 13, 2013

The design of modern lenses while in some aspects are getting better, seem to be growing every year and may soon outpace our desire / ability to carry such large objects. Sigma and other third party lenses can be just as bad. While cameras are shrinking lenses seem to be on steroids.

There appears to be growing popularity for the older lighter screwdriver lenses 20, 24, 50, etc., new wide angle lenses are so long they look like zooms, while high quality zooms are beginning to look like telescopes. Any thoughts?
