Hi,

Recently I got fed up with trying to deal with the factory neck strap and purchased a C-Loop with a strap to mount on the bottom of my camera. I was initially worried about the cost for just a strap, but after using it - I've been really happy with my decision.

However, I haven't used my 70-200 with it yet. I was wondering - what do people suggest. Should I mount the C-Loop to the camera body, or with large heavy lenses like that, should I mount it to the lens's tripod attachment instead?

Cheers

Adza

I'd connect it to the lens, so you won't accidentally hit things with the lens. I remember the c-loop video showing it being attached from the len's tripod mount so it wouldn't dangle. Just my two-cents

You can mount to either. Mounting to lens would make the weight evenly distributed. If attached to camera, lens would be lower. You can probably come up with a way to have both connected to strap.

Thanks for your replies,

It's good to know that others are attaching it to the lens. Thats what I was thinking of, but I wanted to check that it was OK to do that first. I don't mind the idea of having a 'safety strap' connected to the camera as well - but it's probably not necessary.

Cheers
