The weight of the 70-200 doesn't really bother me as much as it being long and I worry about knocking somebody in the head with it

LOL. I haven't hit anyone with a lens yet, but I'm afraid it's only a matter of time.

It is definitely only a matter of time for me given the majority of the shooting I do with it right now which is my kids sports and parents are moving back and forth with very little spatial awareness. Of course to be fair to them, they probably aren't expecting a foot long three pound lens swinging around.

Life was a lot easier when I didn't give a crap what my pictures looked like
