Oh btw, some Zuiko lenses are heavier than the 35mm counter parts.

and they would be pro lenses right?

Pro lenses incorporate something that might be intangible to outsiders
....a quality build.

Well I've used some of the oly "pro" lenses, 150 2, 300 2.8, 90-250... heavy, slow and good for securing tents in windy camp sites.

In pro use, there is less need for being lightweight, it is a lesser
consideration against the rest of the featureset and quality required.

No so... a lighter lens can be handheld much more easily... oly doesn't deliver here the way it said.
