Yes, two attachment points are more stable.

I fully agree that two attachment points are more stable. On the rare occasions I use single-point, attached to the lens' tripod foot, it is while mostly standing, and if I start moving, will feel an immediate need tuck the camera/lens under my arm, in the manner of carrying an American football, for stability. A single-point sling lets the camera/lens rig dangle and swing perilously.

I wear a badge and pistol, and make evidentiary images at night, which incorporates elements of portrait, macro, still life, landscape, architecture, and PJ. I enjoy using both Canons and Nikons.
