Since we're counting oz.'s, I wonder what the Sony weighs without the tripod collar - a collar which doesn't come on the Canon as far as I know.

840g. Companies do not typically include collars or hoods if they are removable. If you include the collar in the weight, you'd also include it in the diameter.

Seriously? Do you not get my point in any small way?

Nope.  I assume you know that you can buy a collar for the Canon either from Canon or cheaper 3rd party knockoffs.  The collar weighs about 180g.
