I had high hopes for the FE system, was thinking that I'd eventually switch from Fuji, but it seems the size and weight advantage are not there?

Sony:
Filter Thread 72 mm
Dimensions (DxL) Approx. 3.15 x 6.89" (80 x 175 mm)
Weight 29.63 oz (840 g)

Canon 70-200/4 IS:
Filter Thread Front:67 mm
Dimensions (DxL) Approx. 3.0 x 6.8" (7.62 x 17.27 cm)
Weight 1.67 lb (760 g)

They should hire someone from Pentax to design the lenses.

A constant aperture f/4 70-200mm will not come more compact. Maybe weather sealing and dual linear AF motors makes it a little heavier, than the Canon. On the A7 it will be more compact overall, but as significantly as we are used to.

What Pentax 70-200mm f/4 with internal focus and zoom is more compact and much lighter?

You shouldn't speak in general terms when you only have the problem with the pro grade 70-200mm lens. I assume you do no have a problem with the other FE lenses.
