Comparing the weight of four entirely different lenses doesn't mean much. lens design, size of the helicals, amount of glass, etc, all vary considerably in those four lenses.
I have Color Skopar 21 (M), 28 (LTM), 35 (M), 50 (LTM) mm, Nokton 40/1.4 (M) and 50/1.5 (M), and Ultron 28/2 (M) lenses. IMO, they are beautifully made ... all metal and very smooth focusing and aperture action. I compare them to my older Leica lenses: the difference is insignificant in terms of materials and build.
