I am still not convinced I would trust this QR with my gear. I have used these on other things like my car keys and a couple times it has come apart. Granted it's a little different but the chain still has the ball bearings as this does

For someone who has used it...

How much force is required to release it? It looks like a nice sling but I am just a little worried that the webbing might push back or something and push on the QR and drop the camera.

I decided to try if even though I was worried about the QR and today I got the loop and very happy that I did try it. This is a killer strap I always liked it except the old style I didn't like the plastic QR. First thing I wanted to check is the new QR very solid and has eased my mind about it coming apart. The release is in such a position it;s nearly impossible to accidentally releasing it. Having owned the old style I can say the improvements are awesome

Hey, that's only halfway around the world. I live on the opposite side of the continent. :lol:

I just got my new LL II today and I gotta tell you I'm very impressed with this strap. I love the way the banana strap feels on the shoulder and it doesn't slip at all when I raise the camera to shooting position. It's just grippy enough to hold it there while being very comfortable. I feel very comfortable with the new QR as it's very sturdy and I don't see how you could accidentally release it. It's very heavy duty and slides on the strap very easily. I am very impressed with the quality of this and in my opinion it's worth every penny I paid for it. I have always used a regular strap but I think I'm a convert to this over the shoulder strap idea. I don't mind letting the camera hang at my side in fact it's quite comfortable and very easy to grab the camera and have it in position quickly. I guess you would say I'm a satisfied customer.

When you do, can you please comment on whether there is one or two cambuckles that act as stoppers/lock for the camera? Thanks.

Hm, I'm not sure exactly what you mean? What kind of stoppers/lock? Do you mean the quick relase? Regarding the QR, there is no way that it would accidentally release by itself, the positioning of is is quite ingenious.

To be honest, I have done mostly tripod shooting lately so I havn't really used this strap in the firled yet (one of the reasons I got it was to be able to remove the strap cause 90% of the time I shoot I dont need a strap). I will get back with more info when I have used it more though.

I think he's referring to "stoppers" that sit on the strap in front of and behind where the camera attaches. You'll find these on BR straps, for instance. They are just little clips that slid 1 in front of and 1 behind the attachment point. They lock into place and stop the camera from moving up or down the strap for additional security.

The LL V1 did not have these, not sure about V2.

What property of the strap is your least favourite? You'll probably need to use it for a while to find out, but if you could post it, that would be great!

Yes. "Stoppers" (I think BR calls it that) or cambuckles that can be slid on the webbing and will "lock" the steel ring along the webbing. The Luma website has a pic showing it has at least one cambuckle. But I've been told that there is an accessory pack (that comes with your order) which includes two cambuckles so as to custumize the luma loop. Can someone with the V2 verify this?

As stated above it does come with two cam buckles but I tried putting one on the strap and it doesn't close all the way no matter how I installed it. The part that hinges doesn't close all the way down on the strap. I emailed them and they got right back to me and I still had questions about it and I sent a photo with my question tonight so I'm sure they'll get back in the morning with a response. I'll post what they said when I find out.

I just checked their website a while ago and they are sold out of both straps and the lanyard already. Looks like it's been a popular product launch.
