I have two lenses hanging from my 1Ds3 95% of the time, a 300mm f/2.8 or a 180mm macro. I'm leery about using a series of extension tubes and/or TC's
between these lenses and the camera body due to the weight of the glass and the body.
Regardless of whether I mount the body or the lens to a tripod, it seems like a lot of unsupported weight hanging off either end. Is it cause for concern?

Am considering a extra long tripod mounting plate, if such an animal exists, and bracing either the lens or the camera body...if it's necessary. What say you all?

Got good tubes ?, if so don't even worry about it, just mount thing and enjoy your equipment.

I have used Kenko tubes ( sometimes all three) on my 180 macro and either a 1DmkIV or gripped 5DmkII/III with no problrms, but I do use extra caution with more than one tube. The x-long plate will prevent rotation at the tripod collar.
