    bcoz tot of getting it, but wondering how should i carry it to outside...its not like 18-200 kinda portable..
    it can't even fit in my small camera bag... (am i supposed carry a big bag?)
    alamak, young man, have u been thru NS? a 70-200 f2.8 + camera body + grip + flash hardly weighs anything more than what u will be wearing for army.

    If my son tells me that strains yr neck, I'll send him to Afghanistan for training for 3 mths...

    Hey William, do forgive me if I sounded a little curt above (erm, automatic response when I heard hanging a camera on neck could strain a young neck), but I do agree 70-200 f2.8 would be a strain to handhold for long periods though...

    I don't like slinging my camera with a heavy lens mounted. If I use my "Think Tan" modular system, I slip it into the LC75 with the camera outside. Otherwise, I wedge the tip of the lens tripod mount foot between my belt and my body and let the setup hand at my hip but the camera strapis around my neck. These ways allow me to sprint, leap or even rock-clinbing if and when I needed to.

    70-200 attached to my cam in my sling cam bag when I go out. During shoot, I never sling round my neck, always round my soulder, or cross sling.

    ** BTW this is a weird question ........ anyway **

    You control the swing, and keep it close to your body. Nothing bad will happen.

    This is the first time I've seen a "camera handling" thread. Seriously.
