A magnesium alloy body is superior to plastic when putting a 3000 gram telephoto lens on the camera.  No way a plastic threaded plastic toy is going to hold the lens correctly.

You are not going to hold or mount a 3000 gram lens by the camera body are you even if it's a Mg alloy body? That's why they have feet and often there own strap mounts.
