Wrestling the beast: 50-200 + EC 14 + MMF-3

I acquired a 50-200 Oly FT zoom for my EM-1 ti use for birding etc. Handholding the rig including lens plus MMF-3 adapter and the EC 14 tele-extender is a formidable task. (I've tried a few test shots) No question the lens is brighter and sharper than the 75-300. I suspect I will be OK at high shutter speeds and IBIS. Is a Gimbal tripod mount worthwhile. Which ones work well with the OMD EM-1 plus this telezoom setup. Help me forum members. I need advice.
