Can anyone who has shipped one of these lenses tell me the Approx shipping weight?
The lens is being shipped in it's case and box.
Thanks

That is highly dependent on your packaging. I just looked at our last shipment and it was 13lbs 3.9 oz.

Edit: I adjusted, old eyes cannot read anymore and reverse things. I believe the lens is about 8 lbs naked isn't it.

Canon specs says 3.87 kg = 8.5 lb

I just weighed mine, incl. RRS replacement foot and LensCoat (no caps), 3.96 kg = 8.7 lb

P.S. I use digital camo LensCoat covers, 'cause they're lighter than 'RealTree' (no wood).

Thanks,
I'm getting ready for a trip to the PO. I"ll have the total soon enough. In it's case in the original packing and double boxed, it weighs more than eight pounds,

Too bad nobody picked 26.6...the lens in it's case, original packing, one layer of taped together cardboard to form an outer layer.....26.6lbs
That mounting plate and Corning Ware lens cap sure weigh a lot.

I would have picked 22 lbs, but it does depend on the packaging, which weighs more than some estimate.

Once A item gets to be over about 5 lbs, USPS starts getting expensive. It used to be cheapest. For heavier packages, I use UPS Ground if I can.

My wife worked 10 years for the post office. The young guys drop kicking or throwing packages accross the large room into the hamper was disgusting. At the time, many postmasters were political appointees, or had pull to get the job, qualifications meant nothing. Thats pretty much changed, but there are still some bad apples.

The employees even got together and complained to the head of the region, pretty high up. As far as we could tell, he didn't even investigate.

According to our sales database both the original 500mm f/4L EF IS (USM) and the newer ver II have a shipping weight of just a tad over 24 lbs.

HMMM! My lovely wife must have sent that out into the field minus it's hard case. I just went into the storeroom and picked it up, it weights a good 25lbs or so. Need to have a conversation with her, I will loose anyway!
