"RE: New Nikkor 18-35mm f/3.5-4.5G ED & 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR."
The size of the front element will have an effect on the weight.800 mm f5.6 will have front element of some 142 mm diameter600mm f4 will be around 150mm diamter.400mm f2.8 wll be around 142 mm diameter .400 mm lens is the shortest.So, length of lens and front element size naturally effects the weight. I can get my 800mm f5.6 manual lens out and weight it if you like, but, I recall its in the 5 to 6 KG bracket
