It may be balanced well enough. However, while I'm comfortable with hand holding of much shorter Sigma 500/4.5, I'm not sure about 560/5.6 when extrapolating my Sigma holding experience. And I am 6'2" tall. I trust MightyMike that the lens is OK for holding, but my technique might be deferent.

After doing a little measuring the place we'd hold the Sigma 500/4.5 is within an inch either way of where you'd hold the 560/5.6 therefore at the same weight and similar weight distribution it'll be about the same in ergonomics as the 500/4.5
