Since we're counting oz.'s, I wonder what the Sony weighs without the tripod collar - a collar which doesn't come on the Canon as far as I know.

840g. Companies do not typically include collars or hoods if they are removable. If you include the collar in the weight, you'd also include it in the diameter.

Seriously? Do you not get my point in any small way?

Nope. I assume you know that you can buy a collar for the Canon either from Canon or cheaper 3rd party knockoffs. The collar weighs about 180g.

Yes, I know you can buy the collar for the Canon.

I wouldn't count on that the collar weight is included in those 840g for the Sony. Nice though that the collar is included when buying the lens.

When you are dealing with lenses that big 100g in either direction doesn't matter much. For $1500 I rather want supreme build quality and it seems Sony delivers on that account but tests will tell. I am really curious to know about the Af speed on this thing.

I would really want to see a comparison test between the Sony FE 70-200mm f/4 and the Latest Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 HSM OS for A-mount.
