Screw mount or not..I use one camera. Street work is partly "candid" and I donīt need the attention that two ready-to-shoot - cameras (hanging around your neck) brings.
One lens, maximum two, with one tucked away in a pocket.

...or obnoxious.

Eric Kim uses "togs".

Like fingernails on a chalkboard.

Eric Kim's work is generic anyways. And he comes across rather full of himself when he tries to sound profound.

Don't quite get that.

Anyway, less is more. Strip it down, keep it simple and focus on the work.
It's for those who carry several bodies to avoid lens swaps, which are even more cumbersome and danger-prone for a screw mount.

Back in the days when the image quality of zoom lenses was lower than I could accept, I carried three bodies and three fast prime lenses when shooting fast moving events (like stage shows) so I did not waste time changing lenses. I had a wide angle on one body around my neck; a telephoto under one arm; and a normal prime under the other arm.

There is credence to your question about what difference does it make because today, I do something similar with three fast zoom lenses: 14-24mm f/2.8, 28-70mm f/2.8, and 80-200mm f/2.8 (my "Holy Trinity") on three bayonet-mount Nikon bodies.
