I'm a new user of this lens, and I'm looking for a strap system that could be attached to the foot of the lens, and to carry the lens plus body attached.

Does somebody have any solution, I have found this CARRY SPEED FS-PRO MK IV, but I'm not sure it will fit.

Any help from other users would be welcome.


I personally use the BlackRapid curve breathe camera sling with my 400 2.8 when I hike with it. Just screw the lug into the foot and attach the strap. I have to buy a new strap every few years as it does warp the  carabiner after a while but you won’t have that problem with the 500 pf being so light. Pretty much any BlackRapid strap will do you right. Hope this helps you in your search.
