Hi Daniel,
I agree whole heartedly!

Some folks may think that's a stupid idea to use more than one body, but if
you're a serious photographer it's great working 3 cameras at the same time
with different lenses.  Why?

Obvious ..... no lens changing.  Work faster during a quick moving
moment....... in some cases even though you're not a pro and you turn up at
an event with 3 hanging around your neck the "security" figure your a pro
and let you in as they think anyone with 3 cameras must be a pro.

Not to mention if you only have one camera and it crashes and burns in the
middle of a shoot, you've got a couple more to cover yer butt. Yeah it costs
a few more dollars but that pays off over the long run.
