I asked Nikon Service is there were any issues with using a sling type strap that screwed into the tripod socket (al la Black Rapid) a number of years ago.  The service tech looked through some papers and said using that type of strap would not void the warranty.  Apparently Nikon has gone one step further and collaborated with Black Rapid to make a sling type strap.  This strap is a bit different from the usual Black Rapid stuff.  The way I look at it, I can use it with my RRS B2-FABN by screwing the adapter into the 1/4-20 thread hole in the RRS clamp.  I suspect that I should get results similar to using the CS FS-Pro.

I did some looking and could not find any official document or technical paper that said that using a sling type strap would void the warranty.  With that in mind, I got the CS FS-Pro.  I noticed a lot of Canon professionals use the Black Rapid strap, so I guess there might be something to it.
