Thanks for sharing your experience and excellent photos jd7!  I use a BR sport strap, but have never carried a camera on any extended hikes with it.  The suggestion to use a dual camera set-up seems like a good one.

Thanks for the info and pics Frodo.  I don't have any experience with crumpled bags, are they pretty durable?

Nice shots Frodo - I especially like the two with tents in them. Thanks for the shots of your Crumpler bag setup too. I will definitely have to experiment. I like the the BR Sport because my camera is so easily available for a shot, but I think the weight distribution for a long day of hiking would be better with your setup. And your setup should keep the camera out of the way better when scrambling up steep and rough terrain too I imagine.

I have a 24-70 f/2.8L II on loan at the moment as I've been thinking about switching to one, and from my limited use so far it does seem excellent ... but I'm just not sure if it would be as practically useful as my 24-70 f/4L IS for something like the Tongariro hike, because of the IS, lighter weight and smaller size (and the macro mode doesn't hurt either).

Thank you jd7 - they brought back a lot of memories when I did the circuit [ahem] years ago. A beautiful part of the world.
