Re: Yay I got my first DSLR a A57. I unboxed it yesterday! Got a few questions.

I have an Op/tech USA strap which is well padded for neck use. However, even though my 57/135 combo is not that heavy, after a few hours of street shooting it was giving me a sore neck/lower back. So I switch to a padded hand grip by Case Logic (one end connects to the tripod socket). Makes a big difference to me. $20 bucks at Best Buy. Try out a hand grip. You may prefer it to a neck strap.
