Ben,

As the others have mentioned, there is no problem supporting this lens holding the camera. Nikon recommends not supporting the Nikon 200mm f/2 telephoto with the camera body, but this lens is much heavier than the 70-20mm f/2.8G.

As a practical matter you will have one hand on the camera and one hand on the lens for support when capturing an image. This will minimize camera shake.

It is a great lens and works well on the D600. You will not be disappointed.

If you have a Arca-Swiss style tripod head, consider replacing the foot on the 70-200mm f/2.8G VR II with the Kirk foot.

Kirk Part Number: LP-45

I also got the ThinkTank Digital Holster 30 V2.0 with Harness. This is a great way to carry the camera in the field. You can even have the lens hood in the deployed position when the D600 and the 70-200mm f/2.8 lens are stored in the Holster. It fits the D600 perfectly.
