    Default which two lenses down the beck?

    If you had two cameras hanging down your neck for general shooting outdoors, which two lenses would you put on them?

    my usual two-body setup:

    - 5D Mk1(hoping to replace this with Mk2) + 17-40L (Hoping to replace with 16-35L Mk1) on left shoulder
    - 40D + 135L on right shoulder

    It really depends on your style of shooting though.

    The 16-35VR & 50 1.4. Good enough for what i usually shoot plus most importantly, it won't break my neck if i have to sling 2 D300s .

    I'd probably have something like a 16-35 f/2.8L and a 70-200 f/2.8L IS II, both on 5DmkIIs. But in real life, i would never do something like that even if i could afford it and was willing to carry both

    More realistically something like a 24-105 f/4.0L or 24-70 f/2.8 on a 5DmkII. Maybe my 70-300 f/4.0-5.6 IS USM in my bag only if i was absolutely sure i was going to use it. I prefer to keep the weight down and am not a real telephoto kind of a person

    For general shooting:

    D700 + 50 f1.4
    D700 + 14-24 f2.8

    a wide zoom + a medium long prime. depending on you brand and sensor size.
    on a ff sensor, 16~36 or 14~24 is nice considering singapore's NARROW walkways.
    prime of around 135mm is nice too.
