Lenses by weight
4

Thinking about what telephoto option I should pick up, and with the Tamron 150-500mm option on the way, I was looking at how the available lenses compare by weight.  Just for fun, I've plotted most of the EF full frame zoom options.

The upcoming Tamron doesn't look particularly distinguished in this weight/focal length tradeoff.

We can zoom in on <1kg to see those many options more clearly:

If we care about long focal lengths, we could look at how many mm we get per gram of lens:

This really highlights the outliers: the Sony 28-60mm kit lens, Tamron 70-300mm, and the two Sony zooms (100-400 and 200-600) with 2x teleconverter.
