I've seen some Domke straps which have metal clips.

They make a variety of wide and thin straps. I need to get back to that store and look at them some more myself. My neck hurts after an hour with the 10D and 100-400L.

Ursa, thanks!

Eric, I usually hold the barrel of the lens in my hand when hiking with my 70-200 on it. That lens is just as heavy as the 100-400. Sometimes I wrap the strap around my wrist and have it dangle down like that, but that has a high risk of damaging it against some rock or so.

When my flash isn't on it, I cradle the camera like I might carry a child. Lens going up my arm, the body in my right hand. Of course, with a child I'd have my other hand on them as well... I don't do that with the camera. It actually works surprisingly well. But I don't always carry it that way.
