OT. Carry on restrictions in Australia. Causing problems??

I always seem to have problems getting my gear onboard aircraft departing from, or flying within Australia. The checkin staff weigh the carry-on bag, and it cannot be over 7kg in weight (this is certainly the case in Brisbane). If it is heavier, they require me to remove some items to check in, until is is 7kg or less. For someone with quite a few expensive lenses, laptop, media storage etc, it causes me some problems.

Has anyone else experienced these problems in Aus, and if so, how did you resolve the situation?

Is there any gear insurance that will cover the gear if it is checked in, and out of my control?

TIA.
