Hi Jim,

I never ever got the understanding why people want to connect their neck/shoulderstrap at the most unlogic/instable place of a camera, at the bottom.

It's actually quite comfortable and it's pretty easy to grasp and sling the camera into action (like drawing a pistol). I had the dual-camera strap and when I was out with two cameras, it was also substantially less strain on my shoulders and neck in comparison to other straps.

At any rate, I'm not as comfortable doing this with my D800 as I was with my K-5s, so I've switched back to a more traditional strap (though not the supplied one) with good padding. Better safe than sorry.
