This is the setup I'm planning to use: Camera is an Olympus OMD E-M10 II, the lens is a Bower 500 mm f/6.3 using a Bower T mount to micro four thirds adapter.
The cause for my concern is that I plan to mount this on a tripod, which requires putting the camera on the tripod, since the lens does not have a tripod mount on it.
This in turn means the camera has to support the entire weight of the lens: about 1 lb 6 oz. If it's necessary for getting an answer, I'd estimate the center of gravity of the lens is between 3 and 4 inches from the mount.
Am I safe mounting this lens on the camera body, and then placing the camera on a tripod?
