b.still Leather Adjustable Camera Neck Shoulder Strap

I just bought this strap for my RXRII, which is on the way. As you can see, the way this strap is designed to attach is not looking like it can be a quick release. About 1/2 the time, I'll head out with just a wrist strap so I don't want to have to fiddle with this connector to get it on and off of the RX1RII. Does anyone have suggestions for marrying this neck strap with my camera in a way that is quicker to release (and still looks decent)?

Is this about my only quick release option? https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0010HA6A6/

TIA.

OP/tec makes a much smaller quick release. I use it with my rx100 and my Nikon dslrs. The one you are showing will hold an elephant.  Well, maybe not an elephant but surely a small pony.

Remove split ring and leather fob from strap, loop-knot quick release to now empty strap loops.

I bought this strap also for my RXrII and love the fit and look of it.

Unfortunately I discovered the only flaw it has by accident.  The shoulder pad is VERY SLIPPERY on some types of clothing, primarily tech or synthetic.  After months use one day is suddenly slid right off my shoulder and hit the pavement.  A costly repair (new lens, UGH) was at the result.

Be careful, a great looking strap but looks can have a price if you're not careful.
