I'm looking at getting a de-clicked Nikon 28-70 2.8 with a Novoflex adapter.

The lens weighs about 2 lbs. (over 900 g.).

Wondering whether the Sony mount can handle it.

Also, Novoflex vs. Fotodiox-Any ideas ?

it should be able to handle it. i was playing around with a fs100 this weekend and a heavy 80-200 f4. the mount can "handle" it but im sure after lots of use it might wear on the mount and that lens is like 4-5 lbs.
