From Nokishita: MFD 0.7 meters, 0.23x magnification, 77mm filter diameter, 89.9mm x 146mm, 1070g.

Let me reiterate. 1070g.

For reference, EF 70-200F2.8L3 is 1460g. Wow.

It may have something to do with the fact that the EF has 23 elements in 17 groups, while the RF only has 17 elements in 13 groups.

If this lens is optically as good as the current EF mk III version then Canon has taken a massive leap forward in lens design and innovation.

Sincedecades 70-200 f2.8 zooms have been around the 1.5kg mark. A weight saving of about a quarter is simply stunning!

I own the EF version mk II and love it's results every time I use it but weight is definitely an issue when I travel.
