the 85 1.8 is lighter than D version

the 24-70 is lighter than 28-70

18-35 almost same as previous version

70-200 VRII lighter than previous afs versions (80-200 and 70-200VR)

50mm 1.4 heavier than D version

50mm 1.8 heavier

New 80-400 heavier due to VR

70-200 F4 much lighter than 70-200 2.8

I'll say it's even steven - some lighter, some heavier.
VR on many of the new lenses does it share to bring up the weight.
