Anyone carrying heavy glass on @7r/LAE4 combo ?

I'm teetering on the edges of going FF
and have a modest stock of "hero" Minolta lenses
and would love to see them do their thing back at zero crop.

Most have some serious heft and size about them.
Just wondering how it all works in the real world,
do they fit/integrate well, or is it all a bit Heath Robinson ?

Is it actually possible to handhold an unstabilised 36mp cam
with F3.5/F4  glass, or are you straight into tripod territory?
Personally, I'ld like to buy an FF @77 sized cam on A-mount,
the ergonomics would be about perfect;
I'm not a big fan of the size and grip feel of the @99.

Any experience would be greatly appreciated,
usage would be mainly outdoor/landscape.

Volunteer, what could possibly go wrong ?
