Ali the time and it works fine.
Not as rigid as a Wembely but not as heavy or expensive.
I have also used it with the 800L and the 400L at 12 lbs.
From the Jobu site re the BWG JR3
70-200 F2.8/F4, 300mm F2.8/F4, 100-400 zoom, 150-500 zoom, 400mm F5.6, 400mm DO, etc.
Lens and camera recommended under 10lb total. Yes, this CAN work with a 500mm F4 lens, but in general we recommend that the HD2 or BWG-Pro is more adequate for MOST users shooting with big equipment. Only choose this for serious weight savings when you have severe luggage restrictions or packing size limits.
NOTE: Battery grips and pro-size bodies have limited vertical tilt depending on length of lenses, balance points, etc. Best range of tilt is with SLR's without battery grip. Example: A 70-200 F4 Canon lens with 1D size body will always balance too close to the camera body thus limiting how far the swing arm will tilt."
So how unstable is it?
Is it a waste of time to buy or a good solid lightweight alternative to the larger models.?
Did you have any problem balancing a 1D body on a 500mm lens and limiting how far the arm swings?
