Recommend a sling strap...

I'm looking for an across body sling strap to take a E-M1ii (without grip) plus 12-40mm Pro, this is the largest lens it will have.

Something very secure and simple, without great shoulder straps and harnesses.

TIA.

Re: Recommend a sling strap...

I use a Sun Sniper with the same configuration you have, but often with a battery grip attached as well.

Years ago, when I first thought of getting one, I pressed an old climbing loop into service to see If I would get on with it...



There was also a discussion on the subject:

Pete (Snaarman) even sent me one of his "prototypes" for testing.

I am very happy with one of these:

Specially designed for smaller cameras but will handle tremendous weight. Comfortable and easy to use even for my sausage fingers.

And I still use the same design on my three cameras years later...
