Cost and weight.

That 100-400 is 1375gms plus collar...70-300 is 580gms but that's without a tripod collar.

U$D 2000ish versus 799....the release date of Newby is drawing close.
1375g is in my wheelhouse, just a smidgen heavier than the A 400/5.6, one of my favorite teles. My 300/2.8 and 400/4 are ~2.5kg, and feel heavy these days... but they are very good lenses, and the Tamron Adaptall 400/4 is rather special.

Memory, I am finding, really does change with age.
Good thing is that this sorta takes care of itself..... soon I'll most likely not be recalling that I can't remember. This can be annoying to those you live with off course..... but that is why our hearing is designed to go at about the same time.
