Searched POTN for monopods for birding and the latest post was about 6 years old. Because I love the versatility of "automatic" monopods (with Manfrotto quick release plate), I've been using this set up for many years. However, with the recent acquisition of the Sigma 150-600, my current set up isn't holding well. I'm now looking for an ideal set up that'd allow me to carry the monopod with the camera gear on my shoulder without having to worry that the camera will twist off of the monopod. Any suggestions would be highly appreciated for both the monopod and the quick release system (or any system out there currently that works well).
Camera and Lens: Canon 5DIII (waiting for 7DIII) and Sigma 150-600mm C
