'MY' perfect strap.
 
https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...1_E_Asin_Title

I have two, threw away the QR fittings, it's long enough to go diagonal across my shoulder........and......is excellent value.

I carry an EM1 Mkll + 12-100 on it, no problems, and it's thin enough to wrap around me wrist, which I often do.

As I said 'MY' perfect strap.

I have the "Joby Convertible Neck Strap" for my E-PM2. It has a short QR strap on one side and a longer one on the other that doubles up as a wrist strap. Perfect for such a small camera. A long strap clips into both QR fittings to make a neck strap. (I always keep spare QR fittings rather than throw them away as I find them very useful for all sorts of things).

I use this one with my EM1ii + lenses, and after trying mine, SWMBO wanted one as well ... and she got one and is as pleased as I am with it.

It really is the most comfortable strap I've ever used and the price is amazing.

Optech have been my strap of choice for a good few years.
Many different interchangeable configurations, all comfortable and reliable too

Hmmm - not sure I'd be happy with the weight of an EM1.2 and 12-100 on those little plastic retainer clips.

Me too, Iíve got them on both cameras and also both pairs of bins too. The wide springy strap really takes the weight out of stuff. Recently bought loops for the bins as the sticky out bits drove me up the wall.

Watch out if you ever use the mini QD loops, any rough edges can make them fray.

The Peak Design anchors look thin and flimsy too but are really strong. I have used PD straps for number of years.

Didn't they have to redesign their connectors, seem to remember something like that?

I think a very small number wore out prematurely so they did a redesign. I've had mine for more than five years and had no issues. Perhaps there being no sharp edges on the loops of the E-510 help (perhaps me not using the camera that much either has helped too).

Very happy with the strap overall. It allows me to securely tuck the camera under an arm when I have a back pack on so it doesn't bump about on my chest when I am walking.
