Camera companies are churning out new lenses all the time, and with those new lenses come reviews. Although usually highly subjective, I love those reviews because new gear is one of the most exciting parts about photography, honestly; at least I think so. There seems to be a recurring theme in these reviews, however. 

This recurring theme is the common complaint about how cheap these new lenses often feel. This "cheap" feeling is usually because lenses are often made out of plastic now. It makes me think back to the day when lenses were made of metal, and felt like the highest quality and bulletproof. I often think of my Nikon 105mm f/2.5 Ais and how much better it feels than my new lenses. It makes me wonder why a camera company would ever stop making lenses like this.

And then I realize it's because so many people were complaining about the weight of these metal lenses...

Obviously, a cylinder of metal and glass is going to be hefty; neither one of those components are light. So it makes sense that a company would change what the lenses were made out of, since that's really the only option. Undoubtedly, lenses are now much lighter than they used to be, with the trade off being a cheaper feeling product. Personally, I don't mind the weight of lenses. People often mention the weight of heavier lenses like it's a drawback, but there hasn't ever been a time really where I've wished a lens was lighter. To me, heavier lenses feel more professional and durable, and I'd definitely take a lens made of metal instead of plastic any day.
