Re: Shoulder strap ruins D-800

I switched over to a blackrapids type should strap and wondered if the tripod mount was good enough for the camera and a heavy lens (sigma 50-500mm comes to mind).  Now I know.

I wonder if having the battery grip (genuine or aftermarket) would help spread the load.

Rather damage a grip than a camera.  I think it would be a wise choice (grip) if you wanted to use the tripod mount for your strap.  That's what I'm doing.
