Sling bag for pro body and 80-400mm lens

I've been looking for a nice sling bag for D4 attached to 80-400mm size lens (Currently I have Sigma 50-500).

I have these bags now

Lowepro 75AW.

This is an OK bag. But tt's a shoulder bag. It's not very convenient to carry a shoulder bag while you are carrying a big tripod and lens and shoot often. A backpack would be great. But then it will be hard to take the lens out if we want it quick. So sling bags are better

I also have lowepro slingshot 302 aw. This works perfectly. But too heavy.

I was looking for a lower weight sling bag and got Mountainsmith descent

But this won't take a pro body comfortably. You can squeeze it in. But scared I can get scratches. Otherwise it was nice. 1LB lighter than Lowerpro 302 and almost same weight as Lowepro 75AW. BTW, this is a nice bag if you have a D800 size body.

Is there any other choices out there> This is what I'm looking for

Weight less than 2LB

Fits D4 body with Sigma 50-500 attached. (or 80-400mm)

Thank you..
