POTN OpTech straps on both bodies; whichever one I'll be using most around my neck; the other over one shoulder and a Domke bag on the other shoulder.

If I'm restricted to standing on one general area, I do as Jon does. If I'm hiking around, I don't trust myself to sling multiple camera/lens combos, so I carry or sling one and bag the other in a quick access bag like the Retrospective...

I do landscapes, aerials and commercial work, I find that the best way to carry two cameras and a bit of other gear is in a Think Tank retro 20 with a tripod in a canvas tool bag (with a long shoulder strap) over the other shoulder. This setup works pretty well for me. I have either camera handy with a minimum of straps and I have my tripod with me too. This might even work for sports etc, but it does work well for me and what I do. I have a 5d MK II, 7d, 70-200 MK II, 28-300L & a 16-35 MK II setup to suit what I am doing at the time.

This is fairly lame I know but its simple and works well for me.

edit; If I am using one camera or if I am hanging out the side of an aircraft I also use an OpTech strap and ONE connector on one side of the camera. Its plenty strong and works a whole heap better that connecting a camera with two thingys.

Keep a 7D w 70-200 in 20 retrospect as it holds both vertically, its crossed on shoulder, and a 5D around neck with lens using op tech strap. I am not a pro shooter, just for hobby, dont like displaying two bodies and cameras, if a pro, not even a problem, then do what I have to do.

This set up allows me to get to things fast and if using the 7D, the 5D and lens attached goes in bag. Also can bring exta lens in bag if needed.

If you're going harness/belt system also look at Think Tank's, similar to Lowepro's.

For my current needs ( local racket sports), the Cotton Carrier for 2 cameras (1 moderate zoom +1 prime or short zoom) works well. Yes i'm just an amateur but when i enter the locations i get "which papers are you working for?" :p The real paper guys has the Think Tank system and he said to me..."i need to carry all this stuff" :)
