I wonder if you could modify the black rapid double strap to fit the two straps to the lens/camera combo so it would spread the weight evenly between you shoulders.

Like one side to the lens ring tripod mount and the other to the camera tripod mount

I hand-hold the lens 95% of the time so I just carry it by the tripod foot. Turn the tripod foot so it is pointing up so all I have to do is lift the camera up.

The Kirk Super-Grip Handle (external link) is a great piece of gear to help make this easier. It is, however, a tad expensive.
