I saw in your profile you use the magicball head do you know if it would hold my 600mm lens ? Here in Japan I,ve yet to actually see one, but am interested.

The Novoflex MagicBall (R) can hold a max weight of 10kg at every position, so yes you could use it for the big stuff too.
With such a lens though, I guess you should not rely on the standard grip alone. There's an optional 100mm paning handle available from Novoflex for better paning, you should probably use this "Pan Handle" with the product code "MB-GRIFF". (I don't have it, but then I don't have a 600/4 either).
As you can see I have moved this thread to a location which better fits the topic.
