I just tried my 70-200 2.8 FL on my D850 for the first time, and man is it heavy and awkward. Holding the lens so I can turn the zoom in my left hand and the camera grip in my right hand, creates a triangle with no support on the left corner. It's like a two-legged stool. I'm feeling a lot of weight on my right wrist trying to hold the camera up. I wonder if anybody could share a picture of how they do it? With or without the tripod mount? (Presuming a photography site allows you to upload photographs).

Thank you,


Nikon recommends

Has ever been thus with SLR or similar style bodies.  Zoom ring at the back, zoom with thumb and pinky; at front, with thumb and forefinger.
