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.

I tend to one hand my cameras a lot, and I can feel the strain as the lens tilts the camera forward, while there is no support for the bottom of my palm. I’ve ordered the battery grip which should help with that.
