I can't find this information anywhere so I would ask here. Does Nikon D850 support the 200-500mm lens weight on its own, by that said, if you have the D850 hanging from your neck with the 200-500mm lens attached, will the lens break the connection ring on D850 or can that havey lens break the D850 ring in case if I don't hold th the lens by its collar foot?

I've seen one or two people on here say that practice is OK, but personally I would never take the risk, and would always attach a strap to the lens foot in some way.
