The new Canon type III 70-200 weighs 1440g. Pricing is similar to Pentax introdcution price.

I am sure Canon really tried hard to match the superior optical performance of the Pentax lens.
B and H says that the Canon weighs 1480, for what its worth. Priced at 2100.

Pentax still feels like quite the deal at 1600 dollars. (Canon is big enough that they don't care what Pentax is doing. They are more focused on Sony and to a lesser extent Nikon).
