...My main concern with it is that I don't know if it's a good idea to put the photo gear at the top. Usually the heavier stuff goes at the bottom and it is definite that the bulk of the weight comes from the photo gear, not from the other stuff in the bag. What do you think about that?


FYI, when packing gear its actually ideal to have the heaviest gear as close and near to your shoudler blades as possible. Much higher and thing get a little top heavy, too low and the bag takes a toll on you due to the poor distribution of the weight.   At least that's what I've noticed.
