I don't know where you got your information but you are wrong.  I have both lenses.  The 12x60 weighs 1.5 lb.  The 12x40 just under 1 lb.  About 14 oz.

It's supposed a professional lens which means robust construction, weather sealing and excellent optical performance.  It meets all those criteria.  If you think it too big then I say compared to what? A similar type lens for any DSLR system will be larger and heavier.

You could stay with the consumer grade kit lenses and that would likely meet your need for "small & light".
