I don't think that lens is going to work as it's both heavy and long. At 265g it's about double the heaviest lens known to work and at 75mm long it's putting a good deal of that weight at at the far end. Both the weight and length combine to make for a nasty tipping moment that is going to be way front heavy. You'd need to add something like 150-200g of weight behind the camera to have a chance of balancing and then you'd have a clearance issue with the gimbal.

As far as I know the max weight is around 150-160g and that's with a lens that's not so long. I mean it would be great if that lens worked as I already have it, that and the 7-14 and 100-300 -- neither of those lenses are going to work a I see it.

the weight is not a problem and it handles it well, it was just a test.. the Inspire knows what it is ect. but your right about the front load when extending the lens zoom, i tested it at 18mm but at the end of the day I would sooner look for a small fixed 25mm.. it was just an old lens that got replaced whith the new 14-140 on the gh4 so had to try it :)

I have a 14-140 that I got 4 years ago when I picked up the GH2, but I've not even tried to put it on the X5. I also have the 7-14 which would be a very useful lens but it 300g or there about.

Not sure about your "zoom test" but really dig the demonstration of how close "NOT" to fly to a busy road/vehicles you do not control.

Landing on the pavement (sidewalk) next to busy road is an accident waiting to happen. Please educate yourself.

Remember 50m clearance or 30 m landing/taking off.
