Edit - after further review, make that tripling the weight Tamron's 70-200/2.8 is 1150g, the Sigma and DA* weigh more.
Argh, I didn't know they were such beasts. I thought my Lil'Bigma 170-500 at 1270g was rather gargantuan, but it seems to be in common company. My FA100-300 (silver) hasn't the reach of the Lil'Bigma, but at 380g it's 1/3 the weight and sees rather more than 30x the usage. Am I a lazy weakling? I guess I should have answered those Charles Atlas ads.
