Re: E1 lens mount, what can it take?

hi Scanny,

I guess if the 50-200 provides a collar support for tripod mount, it is advisable to not let the body take the full weight of the lens with additional support for long periods of time (especially in horizontal position).

i always support the lens(like 50-200SWD or 35-100) when i have a heavy lens attached to my camera body E-510. i used the EC-20 with 50-200SWD before(only 2-3 weeks because i sold the EC-20 within one month) and its kind of scary not to support then lens.

The E-1 may be able to take more punishment but my opinion is that; dont do this over an extended period. Better be safe than sorry. Cheers

My 2 cents worth
