Weight of Lens on D600 stressing mounts?
Sep 26, 2012

Hi,

Just received my D600. I'm using it with the 70-200 f2.8 which weighs about 48 Ounces, I believe. I use a Black Rapid R strap, and it's connected to the lens collar, not the camera. I very often grip the camera pull it up and shoot with only one hand. Providing no support for the lens.

Will this cause any bending or tweaking of the mounts? I've never been concerned with my D700 or D3, but this combo, for some reason, feels like it's putting more torque on the mounts.

I have a tough time believing that it would because this method is the preferred method of most sports shooters who carry this combo in this way to supplement their 300 or 400 on a monopod.

Thoughts?
