Take off the leather hand strap and replace it with a regular strap, preferably a neoprene strap if you are worried about the weight. I use a Tamrac leather strap on mine. You don't have to worry about leaving the camera open if you use a regular strap since the back of the camera will rest against your body. I would skip that Black Rapid strap. Your camera will flop all over the place with a good chance of ruining something, like the bellows, or maybe important parts of your body getting poked by the twisting camera. Looks like a waste of money to me. There is a lot of junk out there for gear centric people with a lot of money to waste.
