Black Rapid strap

I just purchased their more basic strap...anyone else have one in here? my buddy has one and I was immediately hooked on it...no pun intended.

i have it, bought the two-strap kit (which is basically the single straps + the attachment) and I am on the wall.. i havent decided if I want to keep it or not...


For single camera use I have a strap that is 3x cheaper and very similar.. for two cameras.. it does work but the pentax system is a bit compact so it is not well balanced...


I dunno.. cant say i recommend it...

BBear, i see you have the 16-45 f/4. I was considering replacing my Sigma 24-60 f/2.8 with that lens...to get a bit wider so i can sell the kit lens. But then I'd lose some speed. How is the focus speed on the 16-45? I've read about its superb sharpness and color.

Instead of buying the strap, I got a screw, an L-bracket, and carabiners to make the Pentax strap behave more like an R-strap. Works very well, and it's a better value for me.

I like the DA 16-45 a lot, as a matter of fact, I have it right now with me and I am letting a coworker use it tonight...


I've had some focusing problems at infinity but it is rare to happen... and if I zoom in and focus, if works fine.

Optically, it is a very good lens, but honestly, so it is the new 18-55 II... I currently have both 16-45 & 18-55WR... biggest dilemma ever: one is faster but bigger, the other smaller / WR but slower... ha ha ha

I guess the only way around that would be the 16-50 f/2.8!
