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

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.
