Re: Nikon D850 and 500mm lens

You can throw the mount off if nothing else. I would recommend against it.

I use a neck strap and hold the lens in my hand by the foot. Sometimes I just carry both of it by holding on to the lens foot.  Likely a little risky but it happens from time to time.

Some fellows use a Blackrapids strap on the lens, or on the tripod socket of the body, but there's been a few horror stories on that.

All cameras are so good nowadays, that the good stuff is kinda "given" or "expected". It is the limitations that get to you when you use them in real world situations. Windsurfer LA
