Re: slower lenses are lighter

I'm not sure it's all attributable to R5 as the title suggests

The main bulk is gone because you dropped 400 f/4. 100-500 at 400mm is not close to that speed

Comparing 800 f/8 vs 700 f/10 - it's obvious which one would be bulkier (and quite a lot at those lengths)

Still, with you on your decisions, it's a lovely kit. Just not apples-to-apples, that's all
