Hmm... then I'm questioning your entire premise. Long lenses weigh a lot, and to give you an extreme example, with a 400/f2.8, I can assure you that it just doesn't matter what camera is hanging on the back of it!
Let's get some background info. What do you shoot? Portraits? Sports? Wildlife? Under what sort of conditions? What sort of lenses did you like and dislike on the 5dmk3?
> I would like the 2.8 but it's way to heavy.
And one thing that seemingly lots of people don't know is that the 70-200/f4 AFS VR actually outperforms the more expensive 70-200/f2.8 AFS VR-II, although nobody would call the f/2.8 anything but wicked sharp.
I don't think of the 70-300 and 70-200/f4 as filling the same roles, although obviously they do cover a lot of the same focal lengths.
