    The Wehman is built like a tank, OTOH your 360 lens won't even beginto stress the Canham. I have beensuinga Canham 57 Traditional for many years and every once in a while mount a 300 5.6 Apo symmar on the camera. Works fine although most of the time the beast lens stays inthe studio and the 300 Fuji A is in the field.

    The Canham will handle much larger glass than that. I have a 480mm (and a 1000mm) and the Canham handles the weight fine. You can tilt the standard forward and it will lock in place and not creep on you.

    The same is true for the Wehman.
    However, I would not attempt to mount a really heavy lens on either camera at full bellows extension without a tripod under the lens.
