Are there any extending-barrel zooms whose extending barrels aren't plastic? I know that the Canon 70-300mm L, for example, has a plastic extending barrel...but I definitely do not have a wide knowledge of such lenses.

I'm really obsolete: the lenses in the 80's were all metal, including those from manufacturers such as Tamron, Tokina, Kiron etc. The fact is that the X system is designed (IMO) for people who seek the past in modern. And... in the past a plastic lens does not existed, it was simply a BLASPHEMY!
