Do You Use the Neck Strap?

Yes and no

I do use the maker's neck strap but not in the way intended.  I use it to make two wrist straps, which leaves one strap spare for when I sell a body.

I hate anything pulling on the back of my neck and a shoulder strap gets tangled up with a bag.  Someone mentioned changing lenses: it's no problem at all.  I sometimes carry two cameras this way, letting the second hang from my wrist while shooting.  The only thing to be careful of is to keep them from scratching the other's LCD.
