Was seeing what ISO 25800 could see at night and focus on... didn't work :-P
But next day forgot to change the ISO back to normal :-P :p

good example of what shooting in Raw and Lightroom can do if you need to bring back some details :-D
good thing it was fairly overcast outside :-P

'If' you are using a neck strap, an eBay $7 shoulder sling felt like it relieved me of about 60% of the full weight of my gear compared to wearing the Canon "neck strap". Folks on this POTN forum and a personal friend kept telling me their virtues and now I am a user and promoter. :-)

This is the shoulder strap I got But Not the seller I bought from. I do not know this seller.

The strap is called "Quick Strap"

I bought mine for $7.50 or so USD. This link below is for $4.75.

I bought one as recommended on the Sigma 150-600mm OS C thread and loved it so much I then bought 3 more and gave them to friends, and they still use it.

Addendum: after a year my strap is not showing any obvious wear

I agree! Neck straps can get to you in a long walk, I purchased a black rapid shoulder strap and oh I'm in heaven now easy to use and ease on your neck well worth the investment.

I usually don't even put the neck strap on my neck, just sling the camera on my shoulder with the lens pointing in... Not much of an issue unless there's a really big crowd or you're in an area where you have to worry about someone somehow snatching the camera from you...

Thanks for all the advice re shoulder straps. I shall definitely investigate. I do find the monopod helps, too. Love this 100-400 L lens (he said again!).

Not quite sure how you use them though

Still with the helios - but different subject matter: produces a very different result to my modern lenses.
