How to deal with a heavy lens?
1

Hi Everyone:

I was a little surprised that i am finding the Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM lens on an A7r3 a bit uncomfortable to handle. I have used hefty manual lenses handheld before, and have not had any difficulty. This one might be not only heavy but also a little long. Is it just a question of doing pushups and wrist exercises? I also noticed I will have to hold it more carefully to put more weight on the left hand, since the right is what I use the mouse on and I don't want to aggravate it. Any thoughts?

(I know there is a newer model but it is as yet too expensive for me. I got the older model at a good price because the new one came out.)

Thanks,

-Charles
