    Look, I know a woman who shoots owls while humping a Canon 500/4 through the woods. I mean, that is dedication to the art, as we are talking about 8-10lbs worth of lens and whatever the camera body runs. I mean is you have the will-power to do it, great! Personally, that's serious work, as you tack on the miles.

    Remember the short, Diffractive Optic 400/4 that Canon produced?

    It was a backpacker, for sure. Priced accordingly. It was definitely lighter.

    Again, the 300/2.8 is a serious lens... and I applaud its capability, just not its portability.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.
