Weight of 85mm Otus
« on: February 21, 2015, 10:37:50 pm »

I am thinking about getting the 85mm Otus for my Nikon D810, but my concern is that the lens weighs more than the camera.  Normally a heavy lens like this would have a means to mount on a tripod and hang the lighter body off the back of it. But the Otus does not offer this option.

Anyone have any problems with the weight of this lens on the D810?

If I recall, it is slightly heavier and about the same length at the Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G.  So no, it shouldn't be an issue.  You probably don't want to swing it a round, but otherwise you're fine.
