Is 70-200mm f/2.8 lens going to be too big on D600 ?
Jan 5, 2013

I have D600 and only a couple of primes (50,35,60). The combinations are light and I barely feel the weight. And IQ is fabulous given the primes. But I have no reach and want something telephoto. All 70-200 f/2.8 lenses from all manufacturers are similarly sized. So, how much of a bulk? Can I leave it hanging on my D600 or have to support it all the time (or take it out when walking)?

Also, I am not looking at f/4 lenses even though they are smaller than f/2.8 and might be ergonomically better fit on D600.
