 I understand what you are saying BC but no! ...... you are talking about a "bending moment" .... which means a deviation from a straight line ...... leaf spring suspension is a form of bending moment   .....  

 .....    "torsion bar suspension" is a elastic/ spring force brought about by twisting/rotation of one end only of a round spring steel suspension bar for example ..... 

 you must differentiate between "a twisting force" and a "bending force"

 ......... a "crow bar" exerts a bending force (linear straight line force).......

 ........ a spanner imparts torsional force on a nut (rotational force ...... about the bar's own axis ) .....
  No matter how or where you hold the camera/ lens, you are only supporting the weight of the combination (linear force oriented by gravity) ...... you are never applying a twisting moment about the lens's own axis ....
