So I just got delivery of Metabones Nikon F to E mount adapter. Put my Nikon 60mm Macro lens on my A6000 and I am absolutely loving it. It is so much fun!

My only problem is that I am scared to let the lens hang on it's own, I am always resting it on my palm. The lens is around 440gms, the total weight along with the adapter is 600gms.

Can the A6000 mount handle that weight if I hold the camera from the hand grip only?

Obviously no one outside Sony has performed tests and measured the deformation of the lens mounts with heavy lenses. I have a feeling 600gr wouldn't damage the mount if you move the camera gently but it could if movement acceleration is added. I do always support a similar legacy lens with the left hand and don't let it hang from the camera.
