    Did a 360 with these lenses and lost money doing it, but oh well. Lesson is, don't sell gear that you think you may want to have again in the future.

    55mm and 200mm.

    Ha! Nice one :thumbup: I was contacted by Etsy Aus recently to hopefully get some exposure for my straps in a wedding magazine soon. Good news all round :). I've also had a couple of really nice responses with people sending me pictures of the straps on their cameras. I didn't count on all the good feels it would bring ;)

    I'm surprised the wrist straps aren't selling as much as the neck straps, but I guess neck straps are a much more common thing. If only people knew how awesome and convenient the wrist straps are!

    edit: Just noticed it's on an X-T1 :) Double points for that.

    Never used a leather neck strap before but is it possible to incorporate some kind of buffer material? I imagine with say an em5 and 75mm and walking around it would kinda get sweaty/uncomfortable with the leather on neck region.

    Absolutely, I agree with mrthong that the neck straps are still quite comfortable for use with mirrorless cameras (I use an X-T1), however I would like to add it at least as an option in the future. I'm testing the water at the moment to see if leather straps are something people are interested in, so I want to keep the product affordable. So far so good though so hopefully I can expand the range soon. :thumbup:

    you need a really steady hand and fast shutter even with a monopod, but I need heaps of practice...

    sweetest up to about 450mm but i have no issues at 600 either.
    I use IBIS and shoot it handheld for motorsport but nice to use a monopod for stationary objects
