I saw somewhere that a large and heavy telephoto lens had an attachment for a neck strap, that replaces the neck strap for the camera body.

It was, I think, a Nikon 200-400mm lens. But I'm not sure.

In all cases, is there an attachment like this on a Nikon80-400mm?

I often attach a strap to the tripod collar on my larger lenses. For this I use those oversized idiot straps and just make a girth hitch through the threaded hole where you normally attach to a tripod.

I think it's great alternative to buying a dedicated collar which is going to be way overpriced.
