    At one time--and maybe still--Nikon made a great little narrow strap. It came in gaudy Nikon yellow or black, it was a continuous nylon strap with metal adjustment buckle and it was the most secure camera strap I've ever owned. Once you attached it securely to a piece of equipment, it wasn't coming off easily. I bought those black straps for everything--all my Nikons, my binoculars, my Leica rangefinder, my Mamiya TLR--everything that needed a strap. Then cameras got bigger and heavier and lenses got faster and heavier and straps got uncomfortable or they got wider. I eventually ended up with the Op-Tech straps on almost every camera.

    Cheers, Bob.
    I recently purchased one of Gordy's neck straps for my Leica M2 and it's beatifully made. Other than being very functional, it also gives the camera a nice "retro" look.

    I have my doubts about how comfortable they would be on a heaver body with a zoom lens, though.

    All my other cameras wear Domke Grippers and I recommend them highly for their comfort and strength.
