I have gone through about a dozen different straps with my D700. I thought I'd like the Op/Tech ones, but the neoprene padding gets too hot. I like the Domke ones that Michael mentions above, but they are a little thin. The one I ended up with and love is the Wapiti strap: Wapiti Straps - Handcrafted camera strap for the Photojournalist.

It has a leather pad on it, and doesn't get hot like the neoprene does. It is very comfortable too. I'm not affiliated with Wapiti in any way. I'm just a very satisfied customer!

My favorite camera strap is one of the simplest I've ever found.

Oh yeah, that's a pretty good strap too. It's technically a replacement strap for their (n)ever-ready cases, but it works well as a camera strap too.

I normally carry a pair of cameras.

I once used the OPTECH Reporter Strap system but, have replaced it with the OPTECH Dual Harness. The advantage of the Dual Harness is that the weight of the cameras/lenses is distributed across my shoulders, not around my neck. The Dual Harness works fine with a single heavy camera/lens combination also.

The neoprene doesn't bother me - even in the heat.

I use an Optech strap. I like the fact that I can easily remove the strap and use the short version as a kind of wrist strap.
I just got a Smugmug strap but haven't used it yet.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Tamrac camera straps. You may end up not buying one, but they're worth checking out. It's the only strap I have ever used. B&H has them. Tamrac N-17 black.

I have used an OP/Tech Pro strap for years. I recently got a Black Rapid R7 strap. While I will continue to use the OP/Tech for smaller lenses, the Black rapid is great for carrying my 80-200 and 80-400.

Thanks for all the suggestions, I'm going to do some reasearch into some of them. Thoses Black Rapid straps look interesting, what if you're not shooting with a lens that has a tripod collar on it though?

You can attach it to the tripod socket on the camera.
