    I played airsoft and I used my friend's M4. That being Tokyo Marui-made, you don't expect it to be light. I think it weighs around 4-5 kgs so I believe that it can handle cam+lens. Unless its a bigma or any 600mm lens, that's a different story
    I shoot with my A7II . I shoot with my Kalashnikov AEG. I just love shooting ;)

    Phoa, military gears are going to cause u a lot of pain when used for photography! Getting chafed by the rough materials are one Most pouches for the vest are not big enough and if big enough, unpadded. That goes for the sling too. The sling can definitely able to bear the weight as it is made with tubular tape/ water tape but it is going to be uncomfortable. The gears are also not suitable for use in a civilian context as you will look like a military fanboy or security threat wherever you go. Stick to gears made for photography

    Buying new military eqs were out of question for me when i first started photography, i did recycle a few SAF issues for photography though. The long, ammo pouch for the LBV fits a tammy 17-50 pretty well.

    The gortex jacket makes a good splash guard for your camera equipments when the sky opens up.

    COOL!

    I will build one similar to this design using a video rig with a table pod to allow the system to stand.

    No worries bro. Most of my gears are combat ready. I am looking for ideas to enhance its flexibility and handling.
