It’s you who need to get your facts right - its working weight with hood etc is 2.41 kg - see https://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/Lens-Specifications.aspx?Lens=1438. I always check my facts before posting. The weight I quoted for the Sigma lens was also its working weight as I wrote.Sony 200-600 is 2.115kg, not 2.4kg get you facts right if you want to have a go at me. I consider 2.5kg the max I can comfortably handhold for an extended period based on my 300 f/2.8L IS. A zoom is about convenience for me. I use a zoom to scout out areas. Then I might go back with the 500 f/4 and TC's. 2.8kg zoom defeats the purpose for me. Same reason I have never had interest in the 200-400 f/4 or Sigma 120-300 f/2.8.
