Yeah. I know what you mean. My 55/1.2 is 650g, and you can easily see in the photos from it that they were taken with a heavy lens.

A7 with kit lens and a number of legacy lenses (mostly Canon FD)

I wonder if one could even use a Zeiss Otus... That thing weighs 1030g on Nikon F mount.

No one can. It's actually never been photographed in use. We've only seen it's name in EXIF information.
