I don't think it'll work well with the 70-200 since it attach only to the camera and not the lens for my set up :(.

only thing I don't like about it is that its 70$ :( and the strap pulling thing. I do like the 2 point method of securing the camera to the strap. Is it comfortable on the shoulder for having it on for along time?

I use the Tamrac N-25 neoprene strap most of the time. It is very springy and makes the camera feel lighter than it is. It works well on your sholder or around your neck. They come with sturdy, quick-release buckles so you can remove most of it when you want to.

I also have a classic Blackrapid strap that I use sometimes. It actually works well with the 70-200.

You are hooking how many thousands of dollars worth of stuff to the strap? And you are worried about $70? Just sayin. It's hand made in the US, so yeah you pay a bit more for it.

The pulling thing is what makes it sweet. Pull it and your camera is up, grip out lens down, right in the small of your back and it's locked there, you can run, lean over to pick up a kid (frequent in my case), etc, all with the camera secure and out of the way. Let it out and the camera is loose down by your hip and ready to go. It is very comfortable, I barely even know the camera is there.

I've been using Canon E2 handstraps, and now the ones that came with the Cotton Carrier. Much prefer handstrap & holster over a neckstrap.

I just received my Custom SLR glide strap and I really like it so far! I was able to attach it to my camera via the RRS L plate so I don't have to worry about the thing that screws into the bottom which would interfere with putting it on my ball head. IT would be a pain to screw it in and out every time I want to use it.

I love using my spider holster on a belt. I roll my OE factory strap and use an elastic to keep it from unravelling.

I'll use that setup for 3 days straight for 8+ hours while shooting the largest Canadian VW show in Canada. I'll wear another camera around my neck with smaller lens.

I sometimes use my much hated Black rapid RS4 as a glorified tether strap. The shoulder pad always walks around so I constantly put it back onto my shoulder.

Custom SLR Glide! Climbed on the roof to photograph fireworks last 4th and didn't have to worry about bumping the camera on the ladder or roof line in front of me because the camera hung to my side. (before I had a canon-came with the camera neck strap - ugggggh) C-loop is extra but amazon sells both C-Loop and Glide Strap in a package.
