    i was given a used Optech strap FOC by a close fren, i can say it is pretty comfy compared to the original camera strap.

    i must say my 1st impression is that it almost make the DSLR "weightless" RECOMMENDED

    Optech is good. Worth it...

    Though not a neckstrap, the Black Rapid R-Strap is an excellent strap. Do give it some thought. It's a very ergonomic strap and it's very comfortable too. I've sold my Optech strap and changed to this.

    so u mean hold regular grip, rotate camera 90 deg clockwise and rest camera on right hand?

    It's gotta be Optech. Have been using it for years. Still going strong.

    Yup, something like that. Or, if you're feeling adventurous, you can try pimping your R-Strap like this.

    i wouldn't encourage people to get a industry disgrace if you're using a 70/80-200mm lens. your neck will hurt after a while.
