I shoot long hours with the D700 and 70-200 VRII and use a hand strap mostly. It takes getting used to, but with the grip and strap, hangs pretty well at the end of your arm to rest. The strap allows you to release tension on your fingers somewhat to provide relief, as well.

I've also got the Kirk arca-type l-bracket and love how solid that makes the camera body/grip feel. Really adds some protection. Yes, it's a heavy rig, but what a great tool!

Quick note: I've also got the Blackrapid strap that I clip on the rig for support between shoots. I don't really like it connected to the camera when I shoot, though...
