"Hand holdable"? I bet hand holding these babies gets old real quick :) Even if lighter than the previous generation, they're still heavy. I have the old 400/2.8 IS and it sees much less use than I'd like to because it's difficult to carry around (and transport on airplanes). Granted, it's a bit heavier than the newer ones, but still, unless you have an assistant carrying gear for you, don't count on taking the superteles too far from the car. That's why I'm seriously looking forward to a 400/5.6 IS, if it ever gets released.

Agree on this one. That's why after much consideration I'll go with 300/2.8+1.4TC

I guess the handholdable bit depends rather on the individual

It must! I believe the 600 comes with a gym membership...

That is some lineup!

I've never shot with more than the 70-200, but I have held a 400/2.8L (original). It's all very cool. Sounds like I need some new justifications...and maybe a raise. Ha!

I handhold the 400 I so I guess the 600II is OK
