Does anyone use a Gimbal head of the Sony 100-400 GM, or do you just hand hold? For long periods and wildlife, maybe good to have? Any suggestions on some lightweight, not too expensive gimbal heads?

I hand-held FE 10-400 GM several hours without issue in airshow events. Believe gimbal head is overkilled for this lens that is relative light. I will try 200-600 G (in backordered status in B&H) in next year airshow that will be a bit challenge as it's much heavier.

Edit - just see my order of 200-600 G now in stock in B&H and order sent to warehouse.  Will get soon.  I already bought Lenscoat for this lens in the 20% off Back Friday deal.
