I have two monopods, a light one that can hold my camera and my 50/1.8E or lighter. I have a much more robust one as well that I think can support 24 pounds. I use the heavy one more often, it's mass helps with steadiness. My problem is with stability on my person. I shake and sway. On top of that, my back is failing, so I struggle with the weight sometimes. It's frustrating that I can go one day using a neck strap without issue, all day, and another day, 15 minutes and I am done.
I have mapped out what I want in a kit, just a matter of time and resources. For AF, 20/2.8 AFD, 35-70/2.8 AFD and 80-200/2.8 AFD; jury is still out on the 10.5 Nikon...I like it, just don't see me using it a lot. For MF, 28/2.8 (I have the Series E, but use my 28/3.5 more), a 55/1.2, and an 85/1.8 or faster. I have long covered, don't shoot wide often...
