    Optech and Matin are both good. But I find Matin a bit more comfortable.

    If you need a specific brand or model, try the Lowepro Speedster.
    Pictures always should have a special story behind it or a special meaning to the photographer.

    i m personally using Optech. not too expensive and good enough.

    just my 2c: we already spend thousands of $ on the camera, y save on the strap?

    I got a Martins. Tried my friend's Optech. I think as long as it is neoprene material, it will be more comfy than ur current Nikon strap

    also i think it is more hygenic as e original strap tends to smell after a few use. due to pespiration etc.

    yeah i agree with "giantcanopy" too....esp if u r using thos BIG guns, it will definetly be more comfy

    yea...using a Optech too. It reduces the weight greatly as compared to the original strap.

    Actually it is a matter of time my neoprene will start smelling haha.

    The Nikon strap is some tough nylon material that can really cause quite bit of abrasion as well. ( wearing collarless ) Happened to me during my first hol trip with my camera. The neoprene less so. ( Of course i am sure alot of ppl will wear collar shirts and put the strap over it. )

    The large surface area and thick stretchy padding of neoprene can help with abit of weight re-distribution as well, especially when walking and the camera setup starts moving ard
