    Iíve seen these R-straps around a few times and I'm curious has anyone here actually used these straps? They have 2 versions which run up to $65 does anyone know if itís worth buying? I have a normal strap right now that is long enough to wear cross body but with longer heavier lenses it gets kind of awkward using. The new version has a pocket area on the strap that can actually hold a lot of accessories.

    RS-5 $65

    I made my own for less than $25 with a climbing harness from REI and an S caribiner.

        Mine is really comfortable. I couldnt stomach paying that much for something that I could make myself for 1/2 the price.

                Those s-biners are great! I have two small ones attached to my shoulder strap loops on my backpack. The I have two split rings on my camera strap at half length. I hook the s-biners into the split rings and hang the camera from the pack instead of around my neck. I can walk around all day with a heavy lens and sb800 and never feel it.
                Throw a little light. If it doesn't come back, it probably fell off...

                Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 It's the older model w/o the AF motor and it focuses FAST. It's just like the 17-50, only longer.

                  I have a different brand of the double strap. For yielding two cameras love it.
