Switched from Nikon. Still zooming the wrong way.

The RF 100-500 at 3 pounds (without needless collar/foot) is a perfect weight target.For those of us who have trouble with metric....
The EF 300mm f/2.8 II weighs 5.25 lb.
If the RF 300mm f/2.8 is 40% lighter, it would weigh 3.15 lb., which is pretty stunning!
I just checked The-Digital-Picture and the EF 300mm f/2.8 II weight includes hood and caps, which are close to 1/2 lb. I wonder if the RF version's weight includes these things.
P.S. for sake of comparison, the Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 is 7.5 lb. This also includes caps and hood.
