Free...except for the very expensive dumbbell.- oh that was truly hilarious! Neuro, East Wind - and Eldar - those are excellent tips - most helpful and encouraging. Glad to know the lens does come with a lens strap to be used as a second support.
Mt. Spokane - I did borrow for a couple of minutes the 600mm non IS about two weeks. When uplifting to the sky its awkward and heavy. Yes, that was a beast alright. I couldn't wait to give it back. Don't recall the actual weight but would guestimate about 20 lbs with camera if not more.
East Wind re: the gym..quite nice..on a lake with terrific view and only $5 a month here in Orange County - southern Cal. I gather you were being facetious re: the free workout - of course, not the same.
