FTb-n said:Good question. I use the collar on my 70-200 with a monopod for figure skating, so I keep a Manfrotto clip in it. Generally, however, I prefer to leave the collar home. I suspect the clip on the body will work better. The lens collar may be too centered weight-wise and prone to swinging.mnclayshooter said:Okay - let me ask you this... Do you think that putting a lens (on a tripod ring/foot like the 100-400) into the capture clip even makes sense... maybe I'm over thinking it. I will have 2 clips coming next week. I'll do some testing... maybe I'll have one clip for sale. ;D
My goal was to be able to carry the 100-400 (without body attached) while on longer hikes. While I do like having flexibility, carrying two bodies and two lenses on longer distances, especially which involve climbing/scrambling... just seems like extra weight for no real gain. I was thinking I could carry the 100-400 in one of the carry clips and the camera and the UWA on the other. I think though... I like the idea of carrying the 100-400 with the body attached and carrying the UWA in a pocket still etc. It's not often that the mountains/trees etc are moving quickly relative to my camera, so there's time to swap a lens if needed, while on the other hand, having the reach of a zoom comes in handy when, for example you come across a hawk or eagle etc. (6D - 100-400 v1 at dusk).
