I started a thread surrounding this question over at POTN, just looking for some feedback.
Please bear with me, I know it's entirely ridiculous to worry about or ask this kind of question but, here goes..
How much weight AND force can the strap lugs on the 5D2 hold/take? Are they rated to a certain pound of kilogram? I can't find any info on that on line anywhere.
FYI, I suffer from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
When attaching the shoulder strap to the camera, I had to use some force to slide the strap retainer over the extraneous strap that remained after threading it through the lug and the other slider on the strap itself. Is it possible that I could have loosened or damaged anything in that area on the camera. Is the strap lug on the camera body also made of magnesium alloy?
Because of the force, albeit most likely slight to moderate at best, coupled with my obsessive compulsions, I'm worried that I've screwed something up or pulled something loose in that area of my camera, thus ultimately dooming it to fail/break sometime down the road.
I ask that you be kind in your answer. Believe me, it's not easy to ask this in a forum, but this is what living with stress and anxiety coupled with everything else gives you.
