The FE 70-200/4 looks like a well finished lens and includes couple of thoughtful features as well that I doubt anybody has discussed yet:
- Dual Mode optical stabilization
- Focus Hold button

And people are worried about a couple of ounces that is a bit too much for them (and an mm or two which is easily absorbed by a smaller body/flange to begin with).

Exactly. You're already starting out a pound lighter by using the A7. (Lighter than a 5DmkIII that is...)
