    Same here. The wife and I use them on our D300 bodies. The other day I had it on the 70-200 VR ii with the strap actually attached to the lens which is better for that combo. As I was changing lenses I almost forgot and let go of the body which is normally fine. I realised in time but my heart missed a beat or two!!
    Kind regards

    I use a Black Rapid RS7. Absolutely love it!!!!!
    But to be honest the plastic quick release scares the HELL out of me.

    Re: dangers of camera straps

    I love my Black Rapid, but was worried about a bobble (likely) or a failure (unlikely, but I'm unlucky, too ) It got worse when I moved to Arca-Swiss (RRS L-bracket). So I pushed a few ideas I'd seen together and came up with using a Kirk arca-clamp with the BR "FastenR" screwed into it. Now I just clamp the strap to the L-bracket. Works great. As extra insurance, I added a safety tether.

    Full details on my blog:

    Cheers!

    I'm a big fan of OP/TECH as well. I don't like quick disconnects, so I got the Super Classic Bino 3/8" model and I'm really happy with it. Much more comfortable than the stock strap.

    They look really nice, but I wouldn't want metal clips rubbing up against my camera.

    Call it the Eye-Level Special it is conservatively rated for 100K actuations and your strap lugs will fail before the strap does as long as you take care of it.

    I made this strap and I use it bandolier style (another gun/photography term ). It is basically two keys used in conjunction with a 1" wide web belt that is looped and sewn with a box and x. Look at how the seatbelts in your car are sewn together. That is my space camera!
