Oh, yes they do. The 400/f2.8 is 13.7" long and 1 1/2" bigger around. (the 300/f2.8 is 9.9" long)

Well yea, I'm just referring to the fact that a 300mm lens with that aperture can't really get any smaller in size.

If you wanna see a big lens, check out the Canon 1200mm f/5.6.

Canon has only made a handful of them, and they are priced in to the 5-figure range ... like way above $50,000.
