Weight of F350+CanonKH20 lens

Anyone who knows the weight of a SonyF350/355 + lens (f.ex. Canon KH20x)?
I need to know if I can use my Libec T57 tripod (with H50 head) until I get a new tripod. The Libec supports 6-10 kg.

It's about 7kg without battery or tripod plate.

I would say that your a just within your tripods limits, but you would find it better on a more robust tripod.

Time to buy a heavier tripod. If you add wireless mics, lcd monitors, cabling, etc. you will definitely be overweight. You use your tripod like this you will definitely shorten it's life and risk the camera pitching over by accident when the head finally breaks and gives way. Always happens at the moment when you've stepped away from the camera btw.
