Tripod mount necessary on Tamron 100-400mm?
1

The Tamron 100-400mm weighs a little over 2 pounds. I want to use it as a walk around. My camera strap would be the Black Rapid where it's attached on the tripod mount. This would put the full weight of the lens on the camera mount. It would be used with both the D750 and D7500. I've never used a lens this heavy that didn't have a tripod mount included.

Is it necessary or advisable to get the tripod mount for a lens this heavy? I'm concerned it might warp the camera mount walking around for an hour or two at a time without any support.
