Thank you Geoff. Umpteen post later and I finally get the answer I needed. Now I will be able to add 12oz (always round up) to the camera and the largest lens I have, add about 50 to 100% to that and I will have a good ballpark figure, as to the tripod I will need, and have it be sturdy enough to hold it all and remain steady.
