    Default em1/14-35 f2

    Do you think that using the 14-35 f2 on the em1 could damage the camera physically?
    It is a very heavy lens at 900g, nearly as much as the 50-200 which has a tripod collar.

    Unlikely, but perhaps if you're not careful or holding the body only and not supporting the weight of the lens on your hand or a tripod. I've used the 14-35, 35-100, and Bigma on my E-M1 with no ill effects.

    I intend to use it on a tripod and this is what worries me as it does not have a 'tripod ring' so the camera will have to be what's mounted.

    You might want to regularly check the tightness of the four screws holding on the metal mounting flange on the camera.
    E-M1, 12-40mm PRO, 60mm macro, MMF-3
    E-450, 50-200mm SWD, 25mm f2.8, EC-14

    Got this from Olympus:

    Thank you for contacting Olympus Technical Support.

    Yes, any Olympus lens that does not have a tripod collar can be safely mounted to the camera when using a tripod, even if also using an adapter. If you use a bigger another lens that has a tripod collar, then using the tripod collar is recommend for tripod mounting.

    So I guess it's OK.
