| p.1 #1 · Hanging 3-4 lbs. from the lens mount? |
There are a lot of subjective questions on this subject all over the place, so I thought I'd take a poll and see what the responses are. What do you consider safe to hang off the lens mount, specifically when you're having a hand-holding session and dangling the camera around your neck?
This is a common question with the lenses before you hit the "exotic" range: 70-200 f/2.8, 300mm f/4, 80-400mm, etc. This range all has removable tripod collars, and no lens strap hooks, but is getting into that weight class where people start worrying about their lens mount, especially with the plastic bodies (even more so now that bodies like the D7x00/D600 are offering a high class of features with a partly plastic body).
With no strap hooks and removable collars, one would think it'd be okay to dangle the setup off your shoulder/neck/hand just by the camera body... but it's certainly entering into the gray area.
What does everyone else think?
