    I think I can do this. That is, walk a fair distance with this d2X + 200-400vr on a monopod/Wimberley Sidekick rig. Did a couple "laps" around the homestead this afternoon, and while I'm still searching for the most comfortable way to carry it over my shoulder, the weight's not too bad. It does kind'a dig into my shoulder a bit with the lens facing backwards. How does everyone else do when they carry a rig like this?
