You’re absolutely right. I went by specs that I read, and I didn’t have any opportunity to hold it anywhere. But right now, in the light of day, I’m kind of glad. If I had held it ahead of time, I likely would’ve said, “holy cow this is heavy and big!” And been back to square one.
But this morning, I walked out the door and took pictures of birds that I struggled to take yesterday, and every other time I’ve tried.

So I’m gonna go break out the dumbbells and do a little weight lifting that I haven’t done in years, and make this not feel so heavy. I also have a really nice hand and wrist strap that I’m very fond of, that seems to support the weight very well.

I heard some people with bigger setups for wildlife like to use some kind of monopod or light tripod to assist with the weight?
