I recently picked up a Nikon Z 70-200s lens, which comes with a lens foot for mounting on a tripod. I have a few questions, which likely apply to any make of telephoto lens this size:
- Does this mount point just provide better balance for a longer lens, or is it needed to prevent undue stress on the lens mount? Can I still mount the body to the tripod rather than the lens, or is this not recommended?
- What about a camera strap that uses the tripod mount, such as Black Rapid? Can that still attach to the body when using a longer lens, or should I be attaching to the lens foot when using this lens as well?
