I totally understand not wanting a heavy lens, but I've never found weight to be a valid critique of a lens. There are many other options out there that compromise on speed/aperture and IS/VC to achieve a lighter load. This lens doesn't compromise on those aspects, and the trade off is that it weighs more. I know most everybody understands that, so why still bring it up?
Although maybe I'm bias, because I do work out
If it's too big/heavy, then you may choose not to take it to the place where you shoot photo's....
