    Has anybody tried the OP/TECH Stabilizer strap ...

    http://www.optechusa.com/product/detail/?PRODUCT_ID=58&PRODUCT_SUB_ID=

    .... w/ a long lens like Tamron 90mm (2.7"x3.8" cylinder, 14.24 oz)
    or long & heavy like the Minolta 70-200mm f/4 (~3"x6", 24.5 oz)?

    My purpose is mainly to keep the camera+lens more stabilized (than
    what is possible w/ just the neck strap) until the destination of
    subject is reached. Holding the lens w/ one hand gets tiresome,
    more so while transporting a tripod.

    Thanks Simon for the alternative.


    Is the phrase "hook & loop material" more in fashion than velcro
    in/around UK?

    Might be a little tricky to find it in stock though.
    It seems to be the non-branded alternative, yes... I see the term
    used here fairly often too.
