    I don't know if this is old news, and I'm just late to the party. But in case any of you, like me, sometimes fumble around while changing lenses, this video has helped me immensely to overcome that problem:

    Nice technique. Works better with SEL or SLR lenses than it does with rangefinder lenses. The little buggers are just too small to handle easily. ;)

    Well done indeed. I can change lenses quickly but my camera hangs off a neckstrap while doing that. That prevents having to hold two lenses in one hand, which can be scary with longer/heavier lenses.

    Yes, since we humans are only equipped with two grasping appendages, a neck strap certainly comes in handy when juggling lenses. But I favor wrist straps, so this technique is a godsend to me.
