Are there any issues with balance using the Sidekick and the Tamron 200-500 lens?

I've just ordered the Tamron 200-500 and intend to use it with the Wimberley Sidekick. I have also ordered the RRS plate for the Tamron lens bracket. The lens will be used with the D200 and D300.

Wimberley customer service was unclear about the RRS plate and suggested their own plate with exactly the same dimensions. The Wimberley web site has several comments about balance with lens camera combinations.

I also have the Nikon 300 f/4. Are there any issues with balance using that lens with either camera body and the Sidekick?

Eric
