I’ve never been fond of battery grips, but given the size of this lens, I’m considering the MB-N11 as it does feel slightly unbalanced on the camera.

The solution that works for me is cradling the barrel of the lens in my left hand. When tripod mounted I think my colution will be to use a nodal rail - the type used for stitched panoramas- underneath the camera and lens. I use Arca-Swiss based L brackets on my camera so this solution will work for verticals ("portrait" orientation) as well as hrizontal framing.
