Can the EM-5 hold the weight of a 4/3 lens when mounted on tripod?

Not on a tripod,

But I was out today w my Samyang 100-500mm (+OM-4/3 adapter, + MMF3) on the E-M5

That lens is 1.5Kg and about a foot long.

When walking the rig hung from my shoulder w the OEM strap, but I did pick it up by the lens to sit it on the monopod.  Really was more worried abut the $10 OM adapter than the camera- no flexing or creaking noticed in the body or MMF.
