I've owned my 1DIV for a while now and have supplemented it with a 5D3 and want to carry both so I don't have to change lenses.

What is your solution? Pictures are appreciated.

Thanks,
mark

You hire a helper. That is by far the most comfortable way.

If the lenses aren't too big, one over each shoulder with Domke Gripper 1.5" straps. I sometimes carry one on each shoulder (1DIV + 70-200/2.8L IS II & 5DII + 24-70/2.8L II), and a big one on a monopod (1DX + 500/4L IS).

I was using 2 Pho-Reel Straps but now Iíve added a Pho-Reel Plus with a Pho-Pod tripod scabbard but I only use the independent chest straps instead of the connecting straps.

Carry Speed with one, shoulder strap (Up Strap), monopod or tripod with the other depending what I'm shooting.

One strapless, one on a black rapid R-strap. Or both on a dual sling strap.

For highly mobile use (e.g. football games), I have my main body and long lens on a monopod. The second body with a shorter lens is on a Spider holster (a belt system). If I'm not running around, I simply carry each body on one shoulder; my cameras are fitted with Think Tank straps. Sometimes I'll swap them out for R-straps.

One on my hand, the other in the bag. When I need the other body, I pick it up and I put the other one in the bag.

Black Rapid DR-2, hands down a neck/shoulder saver. Shot only one wedding using two OEM straps before going to the DR-2. Haven't ever looked back. Sorry, no photos of me wearing it, but there are plenty of Youtube.com videos I'm sure showing it in action, along with other reviews.
