    I plan to buy one of these and hook my strap to a carabiner then hook that to this. Should work I think and not cost much.

    Yes, the tripod mount is part of the collar and can't be removed , the screws are to stop kit sliding off if it comes loose on the tripod , suppose I could take out the screws but they are there for a reason , thanks for your interest

    Nikon put strap lugs on all three of my ED IF AIS "beasts"; the 600mm f/4, 300mm f/2.8 and 200mm f/2. Although I have never used them, I still have the straps and could see myself possibly using them. I don't know why Nikon stopped doing this.

    And that lens is not "very heavy". It is a veritable featherweight at 5 pounds compared to my 14 pound 600mm f/4 ED IF AIS!

    First I want to say I have bad spine issues. I have tried every strap known to mankind & even some ones I created. The ONLY one that feels good is the cotton carrier chest harness that someone posted earlier. What a HUGE difference!
