I'm dreaming (saving) for a D700 plus this lens. My main interest is walk around i.e. walking & stopping to take photos of "interesting" subjects I encounter. The walk is more important than the photos.

I notice a "projection" on the bottom of this lens. I assume it's there to attach the lens to a tripod. Being a newbie, I don't know whether the camera is also attached to the tripod or whether the lens attachment suffices to also hold the camera steady. Clarification on this would be appreciated.

2nd question. Is this lens capable of being used successfully without being attached to a tripod or must it always be on a tripod?
