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

Why can't compact cams have manual zooms ?

That is one question I don't get either.

And...as to slr lenses....Not enough ppl are willing to pay more coin for less weight, thus we are stuck w heavy glass & metal lenses.  In eyeglasses, which ppl use every daylight minute, ppl ARE willing to pay more.  Not sure how much more I'd personally be willing to pay for lighter plastic zoom lenses...maybe not enough.
