Peak Design: Slide or Slide Lite

Hey all. There's literally a camera strap advice thread three posts down from this one (presently), but I was hoping to get some specific advice. I have a 7d2 and am in the market for a new strap. I'm pretyt sold on Peak Design, but I'm torn between the Slide or the Slide Lite. I'd prefer to go less bulky with the Slide Lite, but I'm not sure if it's enough strap. In most situations where I'm using a strap, I have either a 70-200 2.8 or a 24-70 2.8 on the body. Anyway, does anyone here use the Slide Lite for a full sized DSLR with a long lens? Thoughts?

Thanks!

I use both DSLR and mirrorless and have both straps. With DSLR I prefer the slide. The weight is distributed over a larger surface area making it more comfortable, particularly during extended use. The difference between the two in terms of ‘bulk’ is negligible.

For a DSLR with those f2.8 zooms I'd suggest the slide. As nqjudo said, the size difference between the slide and lite is negligible but the slide will be more comfortable for longer with a DSLR.

Peak Design markets the Slide Lite for "mirrorless". Usually when something is marketed for mirrorless, I take that to mean it's for fuji or leica sized gear. I'm a Sony shooter and I buy full sized straps, bags, etc. because (despite what most Sony shooters would try to convince you) the size and weight really isn't that different. That's why I just bought the brand new Slide (not publicly released yet) instead of going with the Slide Light.

For a 7D with those large lenses I would FOR SURE go with the Slide.

Great, thanks. That's what I needed to hear.

Another vote for Slide, I use it with two different DSLR setups and carry them for hours without irritation or neck fatigue from the heavier setups.
