Paul, that is exactly what I do... I have a Canon 5D for full frame work
and a 20D for long tele. The 5D has a 24-105 for its "always on" lens, and
the 20D has a 70-200 for its "always on" lens. I carry a wider lens with
the 5D set and a teleconverter with the 20D set. Two separate backpacks -
the system works great! ~Ray

My practice parallels Ray's remarkably, exception being one Lowe pro
backpack, and one ML Lacrosse give away bag. (SF Dragons to be precise.)

Hmm, 8MP is not as bad as I was thinking. I do a lot of time lapse also
and it would be nice to have a camera to use while the other sits on the
tripod working away for an hour.

What about size? Is that just internal differences? I guess it does have
to be a whole different design, not just dropping a bigger sensor in a
D300 body. $2,000 less is also a pretty big deal.

Looks much smaller than a D3:
