Bracket is strong to hold the camera plus larger lens like 28-70 f2.8 comfortably on a sling. I like it has a ridge in front to prevent twisting on the camera body. This makes it very secure mount. I did not need a full cage so this works very well for travel and is slim enough to still fit in smaller camera bag. If I need to take the sling off and put onto arca style tripod its quick and easy.
