I'm thinking about going shopping for new glass and have lusted after the 70-200 for a while now.
Before I get myself properly excited, does anyone have any tales of woe/sage advice around mounting (or not, as the case may be) the 70-200 on the D600? It being a fair bit heavier than the body (and the body having a plastic front panel) has me wondering whether it's a good idea or not.
In the past I have used a 70-300 on a d80 (no lens collar there), both on and off tripod and never given it a moments thought (I've always assumed that Nikon know what they are doing and wouldn't sell things that are likely to break without a strong warning). That said, the (potentially) new glass is a lot heavier..
Obviously on tripod I'd be using the collar to mount the lens and have no concerns there. I was thinking more along the lines of when I am out and about using it as a walkaround lens (also when stuffing it in and out of camera bag - stored lens down).
Actually, while I've got your attention for a minute - I'm assuming that the 24-70 wouldn't have any issues as it's close enough to the body weight not to put any strain there?
