Have you ever taken apart a Canon 70-200 f/4L IS?  I have!  It's plastic on the inside in key structural areas and there are actually major stress points where you simply have 4 micro screws screwed into soft thin plastic holding the whole lens together.  The Canon lens is relatively fragile for an L lens when subjected to side impacts.  Hits that you would not think could do anything to the lens have split it in two.  It is by far the weakest internal construction of any Canon L lens I've encountered.  Yes the exterior of the Canon lens is solid but it is held in place by light plastic.
