Camera Table Dolly Slider with 24-70mm lens on Nikon D500?

This thing shows it's good for 22lbs.  But can you leave it with 24-70mm mounted on D500 with out it tipping over?

Neewer makes some pretty decent budget friendly stuff.  Haven't used their dolly slider before so can't comment directly on this.

You'll be fine, you don't want to put anything larger on that camera though.

I like that they have the numbers on this one.  I have one and it's by some Chinese company that I can't think of.  Numbers would have been nice when you are angling wheels and want to have both at same angle.  

But to answer your question, yes you'll be OK.  See how the body is lower than wheel axle?  That plants the gravity in a strong spot to support heavier weights.  I wouldn't go much more than that 24-70mm though.

Can't speak about the Neewer one you mentioned.  I have a Pico Dolly, and while these are sturdy, I have tried mounting my D850 with a 24-70mm and it tips over.  My Z7 with 24-70mm is fine, and my GH5 with it's 12-60mm is fine.  

I don't shoot much video with my D850, I mounted it just to see if the dolly would stay upright or tip.  Yep, it tipped.

What applications will a tiny dolly like this be used for?  I understand video.  But this vantage point from something like this is so low?  Shooting upward at people isn't exactly complimenting for most.
