I'm definitely going to try the Luma Labs Cinch strap. The Black Rapid RS-7 does a great job of keeping the strap out of your way WHILE SHOOTING, but the camera has a tendency to swing around when you're walking with the strap loose (as most people do). The Cinch appears to address the stability problem, while still keeping the strap out of the way.

As I read through this post, I would also like to make sure everyone is aware of the M-Plate Pro which I haven't used but looks very high quality and well thought out.

http://www.customslr.com/products/m-plate-pro

I have recently bought the M-Plate and the C-Loop carrying set (including sling strap).
Really great combination when you work with the Manfrotto M2 tripod heads.

You can carry your camera comfortably and still click it on and off your tripod with ease. There is a quick release on the strap that allows you to "detach" from the sling when the camera is on the tripod (do not forget ;-))

100% recommendation!
Cheers

C-Loop Camera Strap Mount - Silver

This system is great. The strap is very comfortable/adjustable and fits over your head and 1 shoulder like a side holster. My wife and I use them and lug 7D's with battery grips with 300 f4 L IS and 1.4 Extender MKIII's attached. Having them at your side, you can keep your hand on it at the ready and it's not bouncing on your chest or stomach.

I have now had the chance to test out my two new Black Rapid RS 7. I have to say I have mixed feelings here... I did a shoot where I had them both on in a cross with two cameras and lenses attached. It worked fine. Why the mixed feelings? It feels a little plastic, and the other day I was using one of them with a 1Ds III with a 200 F2.0L, and it made a continous squaking noise, that made me fear that it could actually brake because of the weight. Second, it slips down again after I have raised the straps (to have it in hip height) and that's a bit annoying. I think I will actually test out the Sun Sniper straps (more expensive, but seems more solid (in addition to having the steel wire inside).

Love the Black Rapid Sports strap.  I think mine is the '2' model. Not the 2 camera model, but the version 2 of the Sports Strap model.   I will never use a neck strap again.

My only problem with the Black Rapid RS7 is when I have a battery grip on - the tripod mount screw is uncomfortable against my palm when I take portrait shots, which negates the benefits of the grip. But with the camera without the grip on,the RS7 is great to use.

I use a chinese knock off of the Black Rapid Strap called the Quickstap.
I have an Arce Swiss clamp on the strap and plates on my cameras and lenses.
When carrying a lens like the 400mm f5.6 I clamp the strap to the tripod foot on the lens so that it balances better at my side.

I also found that the Black Rapid Brad was a good addition to the chinese knock off, it restricts the  movement of the stap on your shoulder.   Basically it turns it into the sports version of the BlacK Rapid.

I've been using the starp for about 2 years.

Pick up a generic one, they used plastic instead... not bad build quality, same form factor and battery/button setups... but considerably lighter.
