A sling bag will help a little, but eventually, the weight would cause a problem as well. Have you considered a backpack?
yes i have, i'd consider a backpack that was similarly sized as the tenba sling bag (and capacity)

I did not like the sling at all and actually found it quite uncomfortable after a few hours walking around Disney. It could the point where I just hung it over one shoulder.
I use the 6MDH most of the time and picked up a fastpack 200 for when I need to carry more. It has the sling feature, carries much easier than the sling and the 200 is MUCH smaller than the 350 that I bought first. I chose the 200 over the 250 as I don't need to carry a laptop and I preferred the slightly smaller size.
i used to have a sling bag, and iirc it might have been painful on the shoulder as well. bad memory on my part.

I have a Kata torso bag and it's odd, yes, but very comfortable. I carry it in front or back and it is excellent for getting the gear in and out. The only problem is that it looks like armor.
do you have a picture? with your gear in it? (i'm looking for a bag that can switch between one body with big telephoto (at least 12" with body attached and lens hood reversed) or two small kits.

I never felt comfortable with a shoulder bag for any length of time. I use a bunch of Domke bags that I've extended the straps so they act as sling bags and I can move them around my back to adjust the weight. With any weight in them or walking for some distance, they get uncomfortable as well. The only option I've found that works with weight and walking distance is a backpack. I wanted a small size that can carry a reasonable amount of equipment so I opted for the ThinkTank Streetwalker. I would rather bring that and not worry about leaving equipment behind because I'm worried about weight or comfort. When I purchased the 1Ds, I purchased the Streetwalker Pro. I couldn't find anything else I liked better.
thanks, i'll look into the streetwalker pro as i'd need one that can fit a gripped body. hopefully the model is available locally.
