@Citruspers

Happened to me many times, that I leave some of the lenses I needed for the shootout at home.

And I have a few more layouts for different occasions that I will upload later.

Just carry the lens that you intend you use :D

Yep, that's it. Otherwise I'd take even more lenses with me like the 28-80mm you can see on the first picture on my EOS 33... :lol:
This lens would sometimes be quite nice to fill the gap between 55mm and 100mm I have at the moment. BUT in most situations the other lenses are enough.
And I'm switching between those lenses pretty often so all of those are really being used. And as I'm planning to buy another body (probably the 7D which is... well... not as small as the 500D) in the "not so distant future" I guess I should look for another bag as well. I even hope to get enough space to carry around the 500D as a second body. Sometimes two bodies with different lenses attached are quite useful. Yes, I am using the EOS 33 as a second body at the moment.

You never know what you find along the way. The 100mm lens is very good for portraiture and macro so it's useful about every day. Sometimes you just need a more reach so the 100-400mm is with me all the time, too. Now inside houses and for landscapes and so on you might need a wide angle lens so the 18-55mm shouldn't be missing either. The 50mm 1.8 is small and offers a great image quality. Good if you don't want to draw all the looks on you or if you just don't have so much light.
My future plan is to get a 24-105mm lens as a general purpose one so the 18-55mm may stay at home and then a 12-24mm lens to get the wide angle. One lens exchanged for a bigger one and another additional lens. Not even Tetris helps getting all of it into that bag but I can use everything if I'm doing a tour. :lol:

If I need to get in further, I just move the camera closer.

The only real restrictions are physical objects such as fences etc.

1/3 of the gear I use for large budget events.

this is nothing but a support bag.

I usually don't have a quick set up as this stuff is mostly bench warming.

for lower budget weddings I bring my 85, 35, and 50mm in a bag about the size of 5 ipads stacked together.

in the bag is:
d90 w/ grip
d7000 w/ grip w/ 70-200 2.8
2 sb600s
1 p2000 media viewer
sigma 17-35 2.8-4
85mm 1.4
50mm 1.8
35mm 2
radio popper px system
Honl Speed grid
1 justin clamp
1 bag of bongo ties
various filters
7 EN-EL3e's
16 AA batteries
Radiopopper PX system Nikon brackets *2 sets*
D700 off camera trigger
1 extra special red Rocket Blower
EL-El3e battery tray for MB-d10

That little guy here is telling a different story: http://simon.deobald.org/bilder/100400sq01.jpg
:lol:
"If you come any closer, I'm off"

Also if you are taking shots of something that's higher than you you have to point your camera higher using a shorter focal length so the perspective is getting... well... different.

EDIT:
Here my analog camera's bag:
Image
Canon EOS 33 with battery grip
Canon EF 28-80mm USM (first version with ring USM and metal mount)
Canon EF 100-300mm USM (ring USM, metal mount as well)
Some film rolls, filters...

This bag is quite cool, higher quality and so on but sadly it's quite small.

If you shoot wildlife then it is obviously a different situation, but otherwise, I am happy with a limited number of lenses.

Security won't like it if I cross the taped stage lines at a concert. Getting closer isn't the solution for everything.

Next point: Is that a streaker between those players down there? No - it's a photographer!


Well - here's my last bag:

Image
That's just my Powershot SX-10 IS + some more batteries and a second SD card.

Then I have a bigger camera case but that one isn't really... well... "nice to handle".

Think Tank Retrospective 5. I usually only carry one or two extra lenses depending on the situation. SB600 and gel filters are always in the bag.

My Retrospective 30

1D mark IV with 24-70 2.8L attatched
85mm 1.2L II under the 1D (left side)
85mm hood on left side
I normally bring the 70-200 2.8L instead of the flash

Sorry for the crappy photo

It's my Street setup

When I got my Sigma 12-24mm the bag seen on page 1 was definitely too small. My uncle gave me this bag:

(The bottle isn't in my bag - it's just there for size comparison.)

But at the moment I'm looking for a bigger bag. Maybe the Lowepro Fastpack 350? I'm sure I could get all that stuff inside that bag and I guess I'd have quite a bit more space.
