Hey guys, I've recently gotten a Tokina 80-200 f/2.8 and when it is attached to my camera it makes the package quite a bit heavier than with the kit lens, I would guess the whole package would be about 3.5 lbs or so, How much weight can the strap take when its just hanging off your neck, It'd be a shame if it fell :confused:

I've used the Canon strap on my gripped 50D with the 70-200 f/4L attached to it and didn't feel any give. You should't have any issues.

It will take more weight than you'd be wanting to hang off your neck!

I used it in a rodeo to take down an elephant. Not only did the elephant fall, but it asked me my opinion on an 85mm f/1.8

I just took a Canon strap and threw it over a beam on my patio. I was able to hold myself up by the strap. I weigh 200 lbs... Does that answer your question?

I think the weakpoint of the strap would be the fasteners where the strap meets the camera body, but that's good to know :)

I heard that David Carradine was using his Canon Strap the day he died; held up well for him.

50D gripped, Sigma 70-200 f/2.8 (the heaviest available) and a 430 EX II no problem. I bet the strap could take anything you care to put at it.

JWright, good to know but as LoganJ said im mostly concerned where the fasteners hold the camera.

And Gseries1 that was not really appropriate
