I just got my new LL II today and I gotta tell you I'm very impressed with this strap. I love the way the banana strap feels on the shoulder and it doesn't slip at all when I raise the camera to shooting position. It's just grippy enough to hold it there while being very comfortable. I feel very comfortable with the new QR as it's very sturdy and I don't see how you could accidentally release it. It's very heavy duty and slides on the strap very easily. I am very impressed with the quality of this and in my opinion it's worth every penny I paid for it. I have always used a regular strap but I think I'm a convert to this over the shoulder strap idea. I don't mind letting the camera hang at my side in fact it's quite comfortable and very easy to grab the camera and have it in position quickly. I guess you would say I'm a satisfied customer.
