Why is FE 70-200 bigger and heavier than Canon's

I had high hopes for the FE system, was thinking that I'd eventually switch from Fuji, but it seems the size and weight advantage are not there?

Sony:
Filter Thread 72 mm
Dimensions (DxL) Approx. 3.15 x 6.89" (80 x 175 mm)
Weight 29.63 oz (840 g)

Canon 70-200/4 IS:
Filter Thread Front:67 mm 
Dimensions (DxL) Approx. 3.0 x 6.8" (7.62 x 17.27 cm) 
Weight 1.67 lb (760 g)

They should hire someone from Pentax to design the lenses.
