    Yup..... click on the website, under - Dealers

    CP bring them in..... A friend of mine is using one. Much better than using normal strap. But all I want is the 'FASTEN R' ..... the rest I can make myself

    Sorry... No. I didn't see it at CP itself, but the Website provided by TS said that CP is their dealer in S'pore. was just at CP's website..... but can't find any info Maybe have to go down in personal.

    My friend brought his sometime back at the MO selection. I think he paid something like $70-$100 for the whole set. Not sure model 1 or 2 But much more comfortable than those 'around' the neck type strap. Saw & try it in 'action' personally...

    But like I said..... I just want the FastenR. Already have a few Lowepro strap than I could convert into the strap.

    CP-M or CP-P?

    I know the MO was quite some time ago. Half a year at least?

    Question: Won't this make shooting with my battery grip a total frustration / hassle with my right palm constantly having to press against the fastenR?

    And the only thing RS2 is different over the RS1 is the pouch and card space, right?
