I think the notion of FF = heavier lens may not be true

Plastic vs glass is needed.

I've worn eyeglasses since grade school.  And I'd say 98% of ppl wear lenses made of hi density plastic .   Not cheap, but lighter than glass.

It's time lens makers do the same.  Plastics are not what they were long ago.  Very tough, very sharp, and yes, my pair of lenses will cost me about 600 bucks...without the frame..for my eyes.  But worth it.
