Got my fix today, works perfectly and really easy to implement at home.

I hope the fix works, I tried the strap before I realized it was defective and it was very comfortable!

http://pkdsn.com/fixit (external link) is the video for the fix, though tbh the fix is so self explanatory when you get the kit I didn't use it.

Probably will get a pic of it after the weekend, unfortunately due to working loopy hours won't be before Sunday when I next see my camera gear.

How is it? Any concerns with it? How hard was the installation?

The fix is solid and it's easy to DIY.

I'm in the same boat, but if you are in the US, they said they'll be doing out the new units next week. I'm glad I didn't get mine shipped with the first batch, plus it gave me time to change a part of my order so in the end it's working out for me. Looking forward to trying out the new strap and clutch.

I can confirm after spending the day with my 70-200 attached to my camera that the strap is incredibly comfortable in sling mode, no shoulder or back fatigue to report.
