I know I'm kinda the odd duck here as I use rangefinders, manual focus gear, and 1 nikon slr, I don't think I'll convert to digital.... I am very picky about my gear... For my rangefinders (Bessa R2, Leica CL) I have found a guy that custom makes italian leather straps and cases... The cases and straps are true works of art... I've nothing to gain by warmly endorsing Luigi - but he is truly a master craftsman... I've come to feel that a camera is naked without either a luigi case or strap - he is reputable and honest... here's his two links: http://www.leicatime.com/ http://search.ebay.com/search/search.dll?ht=1&from=R4&satitle=luigi&sacat=625%26catref%3DC6 by all means it's the best strap or case your camera will ever wear.
