I've done handheld with the 50mm and 75mm V-Series on a Moviecam SL and the camera got very frontheavy. I presume it will be even worse with the 235, because that camera is even lighter. If one has very heavy lenses, it's a good idea to have a heavier camera and/or 1000ft mag (not an option with the 235 I know), so although there is added weight, at least the camera is balanced on your shoulder.
Getting an Easyrig might be a good idea, it would solve the balance problem and a 235 with Hawks is not very heavy to begin with either.
