How much weight on a taking lens to not need a lens support

Hey, I have an anamorphic lens that weighs 1 pound and 1 ounce. It seems to me that it is a little too much weight for the mount but I dont know. I'm just not sure how weight the lens & body mount could take without risk of damage. Right now I do not have a proper lens support but have rigged my matte box so that it can rest on it, which works but is not ideal.


Just wondering if anyone knows anything about this.

The lens (Dyaliscope junior 16) is attached to a canon FD f1.4 on a gh4
