Just an idea, take it or leave it, but these mirrorless cameras are small and light enough as to not need a real dedicated manufactured strap.

For, me I did buy a manufacturer wrist strap and found it too big so, following some member's suggestion here, I just went to a gift store and bought this leather breaded string and made my own wrist strap for my OM-D. I've been using it for well over a year now and it never broke or anything and it still looks like new today.

Here's a picture of it. I actually used a mirror to take a self portrait of a mirrorless camera (fun). The strap is actually a whole lot smaller than it looks in the picture. The closeup makes it look much bigger. It's basically a shoelace size strap.
