Never tried one, but given the weight of my camera/lens it might be time. Unfortunately, I know pretty much nothing about them. Even relatively moderate outings, I find that the weight on my neck is a problem. I have seen folks with sling type straps where the camera actually rests near their hip....not sure if this is a good idea.

Any advice is appreciated.

I switched to sling straps years ago, and will never again use a standard neck straps.  Yes, the camera does rest and bump against your hip, but with a neck strap it swings and bumps against your chest so I'm not sure either one is better or worse   I can carry a heavier lens attached (i.e. Canon 100-400) for much longer with a sling strap than with a shoulder strap.
