Is this lens easy for you to hold? If not, start pumping iron in excess of the lens plus camera weight.

At 66 I know my limitations! And a nerve problem in my neck has left my right arm a bit weak. (I'm trying to get it back to normal - for me - with posture adjustment and exercise).

What works for one person doesn't work for another. Another example is hunting experience - I've never handled a gun, but I'm certain there are transferable skills for those who have.

This thread illustrates something great about photography - we can come at it from many different directions and end up with methods and results unique to each of us.
