    "put it down on a table / seat / chair / somewhere" ? I do that, or sling it on one shoulder.

    I only use neck straps when shooting event or outdoor, so for short brake I just sling it, longer brake will put down the camera.

    for studio I don't have strap, so just put down the camera.

    I try not to use my right hand to hold/carry my camera when I'm not shooting, either using left hand or rest the lens on my left hand forearm with camera body against my body. since I need to shoot long hours and I'm use camera with MB and pro lens, some time with flash, the set up is rather heavy.

    Using a DIY 'BlackRapid' system...... so, my camera 'hang' across my shoulder most of the time if I'm not shooting

    I would sling to my side and hold the front of my lens with caps on. My 18-200mm VR lens tends to roll down by itself.

    Unless you are having a E420 with a pan cake lens, you would need very big pockets...

    or maybe just a lot of room!

    Actually if I don't hold it, I'll put it in the bag around my waist.

    Err... What if I vary my style from time to time? Haha... I mean, I don't really recall a fixed way of handling my camera...

    Usually I sling it on my left shoulder. Comfy for me that way.

    Hang on my neck if short break of a few mins, longer than that I will sling on my shoulder...

    OP/Tech strap makes it very comfortable...
