Not sure I agree with you in this instance.. The glass lens is close to 9lbs.. So easily double the weight.. Also if the long lens is "properly" balanced on the tripod it has far less tendancy to shake in the first place from camera vibrations.. note wind is a different issue here.. the mirror will certainly have far less of an issue with windage.. Anyway the concept of a wimberly is that the camera and the lens are gimballed as a unit are balanced about a fulcrum which can also be locked down.. Today for long lens using a rig you can feasibly carry it's still the best way to go.. As a note on this and meaning to be constructive. Typically on a regular tripod (non gimballed) it's honestly hard to know if you have a good balance and in that case you may well be correct in many instances..

I doubt that. It weights 2kg (ok, the Olympus lens is 4kg) but that
should change the shaking frequency only, not the amplitude. And the
Olympus lens is much longer, which should shake more.
