    I hold the lens and cam on both hands and twist myself.

    answer is the third choice.

    e.g. you may have a 600mm F4L lens on tripod.
    You actually remove the cam body away from it.

    But if you have a 50mm F1.8 lens on the camera then you remove the lens from the body.

    Always face body downwards, stand-by lens with lens cap removed & in ready-to-mount position, then quickly take out body cap with left hand, and immediately mount the lens onto the body :]

    erm...for me, it depends on the mass of the lens/body

    if Mbody > Mlens , i twist the lens

    if Mlens > Mbody , i twist the body

    if Mbody = Mlens , i twist both!

    Oh. My. Gosh.

    THIS THREAD IS STILL ALIVE?!

    Anyway, now that I have a 70-200, and when I use it on a tripod (with tripod ring), I twist the body.
