i'm so so with the peak design. they robbed a lot of my hard earn money in a short time though :P
the strap i got was wider in width than I thought it would look. overkill? not really but i was looking for a smaller size and I found out about their 'leash' strap which is more slim and got that too. my main use for the strap is for neck strap. I wanted something that will install more easier and simple than the normal oem straps. by all means if you loop the oem straps often you get the hang of it and it's not so bad. the peak design strap design and looks drew me in. if I decide to not want the strap connected I can easily unclip them off but that leaves the anchors hanging on the eye lids. doesnt really matter if you are gung ho shooting. it works. im not a fan of straps to begin with, i go with out straps but if I need to use them, i want something good and functional.

the capture clip, i got suckered into that as well hehe. ive always wanted one, i think the idea and design is nice. never got it because I couldnt find the use for it. at the moment I think if you use a backpack it is very good. shoulder bags will cause your bag to lean and hang down from where the camera is attached. with the backpack you have it by your chest and its hanging on the straps that are more tight and secured. easier to access your camera than having to swing it around, opening up the bag, and pulling out your camera. hated carrying my gears in backpack because of that reason, got rid of them but with the capture clip I am thinking of getting a backpack again. still sucks if you need to change lens :rolleyes:

luma cinch is still my favorite strap. i love the soft shoulder, it helps reduce the weight on your camera hanging down and makes it comfortable to wear. the cinch makes it easy to adjust to the fit you need it to be and the pull tab is luxurous :P the peak design straps are tough like car seat belts as you can see, but it will eat into your shoulder when wearing too long. the regular slide from peak design has a padded shoulder but it doesnt extend like the soft ones luma used for their cinch (im not a fan of their loop) which does not seem to make it comfortable. now that is something that I see and assume, i dont have the strap to use to know from experience.

Couldn't you just return if you weren't happy with it? -?

For the longest time I was using Optech straps with my rebel. Then went with the 5dIII with grip. Heavier so tried the Luma Cinch. Converted my Manfrotto ballhead to arca swiss and picked up a Sirui ballhead with arca swiss also. Cinch works well enough and I can slide the a/s plate fairly quickly and securely. I think Luma has a newer Loop with an arca swiss plate and a swiveling metal loop attached to the plate that a strap can go through. And there's a screw on option too at the bottom of the camera. Looks nicer (large leather shoulder strap vs neoprene on my cinch) but kinda pricey. :eek:

I've been thinking of ditching my GX8 for a Sony FF for a bit now.. one the sharing threads are more active and such than they are for the Panasonic, but two i just have few reasons to use it instead of my 7D in most situations...having a FF sensor would give me a reason to grab an A7 over the 7D for some subjects

Actually one reason i love my Panasonic are the Leica lenses for it :/ They do have the lovely color and "look" of the real thing...

Not the GX8 but this is all ive put out for photos lately

I won't be able to return. it's from their kick starter campaign so all items are as 'gift' when making the pledge. but i'm ok with them, I don't need to return them. one of these days they will be put in use hehe

yeah luma has a new loop coming out real soon. the thing with leather straps is that it will eat into your shoulders when using. the neoprene works well because it stretches and is soft, making it comfortable and light weight when you have weight hanging on it. to me... i think luma went backwards when they brought back the loop. some would disagree because they love the loop, so this is my opinion :P I say that because of the leather shoulder and the loop mount. the loop mount makes the camera swivel and swing around versus the cinch being attached to the bottom and side makes it less bouncy. that was the goal of the cinch, comfort, no bounce, easy adjustments.

for my personal use i use their recent pod mount (v2) as my bottom connection. it's small and doesnt get in the way. i will not have a strap attached if i use a tripod so the arca mount and strap idea is no good for me. i do use their carbon arca mount as my main tripod mount though. its my only one heh

I have both cinch1 and cinch2 and I prefer the first.

Kenji- many Leica shooter like their Panasonic and the Leica lenses used in the cropped sensors cameras I believe are in partnership with Panasonic.

Baan- I am not moving to newer Sony bodies, if even I may get a A6500 because I gave my A6000 to my teenage granddaughter. But maybe just stick with Leica :-)

AFAIK, Leica's digital bodies are made in partnership with Panasonic and even some of the lenses are co-designs according to patents(The spectacular full frame 24-90 iirc is one example)

I know I love my Summilux 15mm f/1.7 and my Macro-Elmarit 45mm f/2.8 for their bokeh and color... Waiting, and hoping, for a Leica-Panasonic 25mm f/1.2 Nocticron to go with the 42.5 which might keep me planted in the Panasonic camp

And FWIW, the GX8 is surprisingly capable at high ISO.. its sad it has issues with shutter "jello" artifacts and shutter shock...

Just stopping in to say hi!

Still shooting with Sony RX10, I love the Sony but I’ve found 200mm is just not long enough so I’m looking at picking up a Canon 5d Mark 2 or a Nikon D600. That way I can still have decent video and pick up a lens to get me too the 300-400mm range I want.
