Newbie question about Panasonic 100-400 that just arrived.
1

I have never had a telephoto of this size before, so I had a few questions.

1. Aside from when you use the tripod, does it make sense to take off the foot? It seems to get into the way of zooming.

2. Is it safe to keep the lens in a bag, face down, with the lens hood attached like this?- https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0532/0233/products/digital-holster30-v2-2.jpg?v=1524606603

I would like to buy that thinktank bag, but just didnt know how safe it was to keep in that position with the lens hood on.

3. Is it safe to have the lens hang from a G9 with no support?

4.  Can anyone recommend a strap that includes a mount that threads into the 100-400?

Thanks!

Panasonic Leica 100-400mm F4.0-6.3 ASPH Panasonic Lumix DC-G9
