Hey fellas, have you stumbled upon any good straps for M system, something simple and elegant. Preferably withount baseplate mount. Cheers!

I just ordered the PD leash to try, dont use a strap that often but its a pain putting it on and off when I do. like the quick on & off of the PD. hopefully it comes before the weekend.

got it yesterday, very happy with it, havent actaully been out & about with it but it seems like it will do me nicely, I like being able just to slip it up when I want to take a pic and so easy to take off when not needed. I'm quite impressed!.

Have a look at peak designs. Like mike616 says the leash is good. I have a couple of their straps. The quick release clips mean it’s easy to swap you favourite out if you need to. Though the leash is the one I use the most

What camera set ups do you use with the Leash please? I was thinking of the Lite but the Leash looks even smaller & easier to use/store.

I have the A7, L Bracket & CV40/1.2E as my heaviest combination which is no more than 1Kg I wouldn't have thought.

I use my Canon 750d and usually with the 50mm F1.8 or the kit lens. sometimes the 10 -18mm too but I also use the cuff a lot especially if I use the bags with the capture clip. I am upgrading to the 80d so might need a rethink strap wise.

Thanks. Not too much difference then as an average. Especially for how often & for how long I actually walk around using the strap!

I use the standard Leica strap, which is I think the 14312:

https://www.cliftoncameras.co.uk/Leica-Standard-Carrying-Strap-with-Antislip-Pad-14312

The rings and their plastic protectors are designed to avoid damaging the camera when installing or using it. It's a strong but not very wide nylon strap with a shoulder grip that does have a leica logo, but it's black on black (without a red dot, thankfully).
