I've been using my Black Rapid straps for almost 5 years. In fact, I think I had one of the original straps. I've used all of them including the double strap with my D800 and 2.8 glass. I use it with my 70-200 f/2.8 mounting it to the tripod leg of the lens.

Without a doubt, I've had absolutely no problems with any of their straps on any of my cameras. Surprisingly, one thing that hasn't been mentioned is that when your camera is mounted to your tripod, don't most people walk around with the camera mounted to the tripod and the tripod over your shoulder? If it is strong enough for that, why wouldn't the tripod mount be strong enough to handle the pressure from a Black Rapid strap?

The Black Rapid strap allows me to carry my heavy camera and lenses around all day. After shooting a wedding for 6 hours, I really appreciate the comfort. I have no fear that there will be any damage to my cameras. The fact that Nikon has now released their own branded Black Rapid strap only verifies what I've been telling people for years. Make sure your fastener is tight and you will have no issues.
