comment What are the difficulties with making a 10mm-300mm zoom lens?
@matt.nguyen: You're correct about the Canon. The Sigma is mountable on a full-frame camera (despite B&H's incorrect description). I made sure of that when I bought the lens. However, further research indicates that, while it's mountable on a full-frame camera, significant Vignetting will occur--which is just as bad, at least for the purpose of this answer.

Good answer; but the weight of the camera is really irrelevant in your example. When you are only holding the camera body, the weight of that body has no bearing on the force applied by the weight of the lens. Now, if you're holding just the lens, then the weight of the camera body would be relevant... but you shouldn't ever have a reason to do that :)
