70-200 2.8 S Handling?

There is only one expensive, heavy, native telephoto zoom option for the Z cameras; the 70-200 2.8

So far Tamron/Sigma/Tokina have not made their Sony mirrorless mount lenses available for Z bodies. I would love to have the Tamron 70-180 for my Z6

I would like to upgrade from my dated 70-200 F4G plus FTZ and I guess there is no other option than the 70-200 S line lens.

How is the balance and handling of this lens on the small Z FX bodies? I use a small rig grip on mine so I have a little extra to hold on to.

Would you say the lens if front heavy or does it balance well on the palm of the hand? How does it feel to use that lens for a couple of hours? I know the optics are the best but I care a lot about handling and weight as well.

Do you know if the VR on the 70-200 S is effective on a Z50?
