OP/TECH USA offers a unique solution to this potential problem with the System Connectors™–Lens Loops. These unique connectors support the camera from the point where it meets the lens, thereby reducing the stress on the camera’s lens mount.
With the popularity of sling-style camera straps photographers who carry larger lenses are learning that the extra weight of these lenses can cause a lot of stress on a camera’s lens mount. OP/TECH USA offers a unique solution to this potential problem with the System Connectors™ – Lens Loops. These unique connectors support the camera from the point where it meets the lens, thereby reducing the stress on the camera’s lens mount. They can be used with a OP/TECH USA’s sling-style straps, or professional neck straps when used in conjunction with a set of System Connectors™ – Extensions.
The System Connectors™ – Lens Loops fit lens mounts up to 3 1/4” (8,2 cm) in diameter and feature a rubberized sleeve that protects the equipment’s finish while preventing slippage. It also keeps the camera’s tripod socket free for use without having to be removed. Lens Loops™ come in pairs so photographers have a choice of male or female connection options. They can be used individually or in conjunction with other The System Connectors™ for added security.

How to attach to sling style straps:
With the lens removed from the camera, place the lens loop with the male quick-disconnect over the lens barrel by the mount. Then simply mount the lens to the camera. Once attached, the quick disconnect clicks into the mating connector on the sling. For extra security, you can tether the camera's body to the sling's second quick disconnect with an Extension (sold separately.)
