    if you find it troublesome to change lens, you can look for a lens that is quite wide with acceptable telephoto capabilities (i.e 18-200). that way you need not change lens frequently. just my thought
    I shoot with my A7II . I shoot with my Kalashnikov AEG. I just love shooting ;)

    eh... random question...

    why should you have to justify why you need a new body to a bunch of randoms online?

    if i feel i need something new i go and get it, not ask people whether im "worthy" of another body or not...

    haha yeah exactly. Whether or not to get a 2nd body is entirely up to you, so you need not justify anything to us here. Fair enough to want to seek opinions.
    As you can see, the opinions are covering the entire spectrum.

    I personally find carrying 2 bodies to be a pain in the a$$, so I stick to my 1 body + multiple lens set-up.
    If you get the technique right, it's not that troublesome a procedure.

    Like I said... totally your decision.
    Exploring! :)

    A fair bit of sports photographers have this on actually for those events where require them to move around the venue a lot and helps when they kneel down to shoot. Imagine having to kneel on hard court.

    hahahha im planning to get the dual camera spider holster after i get my 2nd cam. which i NEED as a backup for covering events. My camera is way past its usual shutter count and has been serviced once. so im constantly afraid that the shutter mirror might fail. (i replaced the shutter motor already)

    Hi did you do some research on BlackRapid RS DR-1 Double Strap? My friend bought it for me from State. It is amazing but I still prefer using a camera with waistbelt.
