I use a small Tamrac bag slung over the other shoulder. Cinch strap crosses over that-no interference.

Most of you guys have tried several straps. So why do you guys prefer the Luma to the BlackRapid solutions?
I received a RS-7 as a gift but I am intrigued by the Luma Cinch...

I went BlackRapid to Cinch and I'm happy I did. The BR wanted to spin around in circles and never felt stable when it was at my side. I like hot the Cinch sits when at my hip. I always felt like I had to have a hand on my camera with the BR to minimize the bouncing.

Had previous experience with the BR and the Cinch, and I definitely prefer the Cinch over the BR. Great customer service, and great quality product.

Wow! I was mot expecting it! ;)
Another important piece of info is that I will use it with a 5dII ungripped with RRS L plate. My usual lenses in a walkaround setup are 21OM, 50ZE, and 100ZE, so nothing heavy or long.
Anyone concerned about the buckles scratching the camera while in the bag?
How about a couple pros and a couple cons vs the BR?
I will update this post with your answers.
So far we have

Pros
Great customer service.

Cons

The lack of a QR currently is certainly a con, but that looks like it will be handled soon. I just drape the strap into another portion of the bag where my flashes sit. It's certainly not a reason not to purchase the strap. It was the only thing holding me back from buying one, but I'm glad I went ahead and ordered the strap. Since it is looking like the QR is coming any day now, I can't think of a reason not to get one. I find the Cinch more comfortable than the BR as well.

Wondering how you cinchers handle a heavy lens? Do you let the heavy lens dangle from the mount? When I had the cinch I hooked it up to the lens collar but wasn't all that happy with that

I let a 7D/70-200ii dangle down. But I also make sure to have the hood on normally.

The strap is on the camera body.

I, too, switched from Black Rapid to Cinch and I'm glad I did. The Black Rapid was uncomfortable on my shoulder after wearing it for a few hours. Granted it was a version that doesn't have the shaping some of them do now. The camera seemed to bounce around a lot because of the single attachment point. I found when walking around I always had to keep a hand on the camera to keep it from swinging around.

The Cinch doesn't move hardly at all, even if the strap is not "cinched". I have it attached using the side lug and the one on the bottom of my RRS L plate. I also managed to attach a leather hand strap too and I really love the combination. When doing hiking, particularly on uneven ground or steep inclines, I cinch it up and it stays put yet is still easy to reach and use.

Love it!

Mickey

Are there any lens sizes for which the 2nd attachment point should be on the lens tripod foot instead of the camera tripod socket? My biggest lens is a 100-400, which I think is a bit lighter than the 70-200 MK II.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Still like to see how people attach this strap and a heavy lens? Myself I don't like a heavy lens dangling from the body, so when I had mine I attached it to the lens collar and the body but was a nuisance to change the lens
