Mounting on tripod: Collar vs. body

How much weight and length (of a lens) that a DSLR body can hold when mounted on a tripod?

As you know for heavy lenses we use a tripod collar and for lighter lenses, we mount the body on a tripod.

I have Nikon D850 that weighs 1010 gms (including battery and two cards).

My Sigma 150mm OS macro lens weights 1150 gms and 5.9 inches in length. It came with a tripod collar.

Now, should use the collar or the body to mount on a tripod? I also use a flash (with a diffuser) and macro filters whenever required.

I have been using the collar to mount on my tripod, but if I can mount the body I will save some weight and space by not using the collar.

Thanks in advance!
