    Thanks for posting this. Nice and handy, but I think you'd need pretty big hands to do this, and also assumes you're using a fairly light camera without a battery grip. With a large and heavy camera this would pose some issues. Maybe some day I'd try, but at the moment I wouldn't even trust myself to do this right!

    Thanks for sharing. I also feel that it will be rather difficult to execute the quick len change if the camera body itself and lens are large and heavy to hold. I wouldn't want to risk dropping the len
    Good photography is not so much about what you use as the way that you use it.

    NIce for you to share this. I might not hink of doing this on my cam. the body seems heavy enuf for me. Te risk of dropping both lens and body is high risk.

    Not a high risk taker when it comes to this.

    I just tried it with 2 small lenses and it seems quite smooth....

    But I can't imagine trying it with heavy lenses....

    don't buy heavy lenses.

    most of the time you'd need this on travel more than anything else, if you bring a 50-500 or something like that on holiday.. you must be really, really, really fit, then no problem.

    hmm.. thanks for sharing.
    Its uncommon for me to be that much of a hurry to change lens though.

    thanks for sharing. the method is quite interesting. think it is more suitable for lighter lenses & camera body.

    don't it works for heavy lens, like 70-200mm f2.8.

    i switch my 70-200 f4 and 24-70 f2.8 combat shoot style..like changing magazines.. basically i take out the 2nd lens from pouch n put between right elbow n torso...remove the 1st lens from camera n drop into pouch on left hip..then mount the 2nd lens..

    his method is only good for small lenses n bodies, i wun dare to do this with a gripped 30D, hehe

    I just tried ! very fast ahah ... usually i take out one, put in my canon bag then put the next lens in. Very slow and clumsy. but i recommend we try this method with your camera bag just underneath to 'catch' any slips haha

    Quite easy to do with my smaller prime lenses. .

    If both lenses are 77mm threaded my palm too small!
