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? Thank you. Any good but affordable straps recommended for cariing such lens attached to the D850?

Thank you.

You really want the combined weight of 6lbs hanging off your neck?  Carry it by the foot, place the camera and lens in your bag, or mount the foot to a tripod and rest the entire setup over your shoulder.
