Re: XP1: are your strap lugs showing extreme wear/

Several solution to avoid lug wear:

1/- replace small and ridiculous trianles by quite big rings to avoid blocage of the triangle on the wear

2/- use some solid thread/small cable instead of the ring

With the 55-200mm plus an L bracket the combo begins to be heavy so one has to be careful with that solution

I use rings and do not observe significant wear on the lugs after 18 months (small traces of abrasion on the outer part)
