Re: Do you think it's too heavy?

Reading your whole post is a bit confusing.

After going through my fair share of lenses I have come to the
realization that I am just not comfortable with a lens that isn't
built solidly. It doesn't have to be "heavy" per se...just built
really well.

You sent the 70-200 F4 IS back because it was too light? So is the 70-200 F4 IS solidly built?

I actually sent back a 70-200 F4LIS after using it for a day because
it felt too light. I am soo used to the 2.8 version that I just
couldn't see myself using the lightweight f4.

These two primes are light and it goes with your original argument about not having to be heavy but solidly built. However, it doesn't go with your 70-200.

I even like my 50 1.4 and 100f2 because they are solidly built. They
don't need to be "heavy"...just solid.

Don't worry about the weight...try it for a few days first. You may
like it.
