But The Two cameras on my neck , I will hold them in both hands, When I walk or run to catch  the great Photos.
Nice to talk to you again.

That gear is made to stand up to light knocks such as that.  One day when you handle an L lens, you will feel how good the build quality is and understand that two lens bumping into each other from a few inches or even a foot away is no issue.  You pay more, sure, but you also get really good durability.

Do you think actual professionals worry about their gear bumping into each other, or into other things?  No, they worry about getting the shot, knowing that their gear is well made.  I've dropped a Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM Autofocus from neck height while changing lenses once, it landed on a rock, bounced off, and kept on chugging that whole day and for years to come (to this day).

If you worry about bumps from such short distances, you'll be constantly guarding your gear, and you will miss shots (another reason why professionals don't guard their gear really cautiously...their livelihood depends on them getting the shot).

I should clarify, if you don't own L lenses, then you may want to take extra precaution with your cheaper lenses.  All my glass is L or Zeiss, so I'm not sure on the build quality of the lesser lenses, but from what I have read, it is not quite as good.  In that case it might be wise to protect them somewhat.  It really just depends on what gear you have.  Sorry about not being too clear on the first post.

THANKSSSS, Dear friend Mr. SoullessPolack . Great Recommendation.
I use to be in the army, and my Drill Sargent teach me that----Our Gun and our war equipment that we carry in the field are our heart, we need to take care and protect as same as our life, Take care more than our Wife at home, in the battle field---Because = this guns and the equipment are only source that will safe our lifes.

Same as " L " Lenses or Not " L " Lens= Glasses are glasses which can break or get lose from the original position, which will make us ( Photographers) look real bad, when  the clients see our out of focus his/ her wedding photographs( Because of Damaged Lenses or we get drunk from the Pre-Wedding Party last night.
Have a great Sunday, Sir.
Surapon.
