OM1 with 300 f4 - attach sling strap to camera?

Finally got my OM1 today (woohoo!) and the battery is charging.

On my current dslr setup I attach my Black Rapid sling strap to the camera base screw thread and leave my Nikon 300mm pf lens hanging, as it is so light - much lighter than the Olympus 300 lens.

I'd like to do the same again and remove the Oly lens foot to make it all as light as possible, but am worried that this will put too much strain on the lens mount.

What do others do who use this gear as a walkabout birding setup?

Many thanks

Sean
