I don't really take a bag, but in my coat pocket you might find my Sony RX1.
I do have a little bag that can fit it as well (it can instead barely fit my NEX-5N with the SEL 50/1.8 attached - barely).
If I want to go bulky (to me, that is) then I have this bag:
I can fit the RX1 and my Sony NEX 5N with the SEL50/1.8 attached and Rokinon Fisheye 8/2.8 lens can be squeezed in 1 side as well. I add a lens blower on the other side (next to the RX1). I add 2 extra batteries in the front pockets and I have everything I need.
Lowepro bag, Manfrotto MKC3-H01
SLT a57, Tamron 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5, Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8, Sony 50mm f/1.8, Sony 55-200 f/4-5.6 and a Minolta 75-300 f/4.5-5.6 D
A spare 16GB SDHC card, blower, manuals, UV filters on every lens, a 55mm CPL, Opteka RC3 IR remote, spare batteries for the camera and the remote.
Within the next couple of weeks, I will get a heavier duty tripod with a ball head and replace the 55-200 and 75-300 with SAL70-200G. I don't currently feel too much of a need for the 200-300mm range. Am eventually considering a 70-400G or a 1.4X TC for the 2.8 G lens. I am also looking for a decent mount for astrophotography and I may never get the 70-400G if the CFO at home has her way
It varies depending on the job, but I just wanted to say that I got myself a new bag...
A Crumpler 6 Million Dollar Home.
BTW, not an ad, I am not affiliated I just like the product.
An amazing little bag for what it fits and is going to be my main bag for my walking and events. I discovered these guys were an Australian outfit and had shops everywhere (not always easy to find kit in Aus).
In this bag I have...
A77, 16-50 and 70-300 Lenses
60M Flash unit (and accessory bag)
Wireless/wired triggers, spare Batteries, ND Filter, Mem cards, cleaning clothes and blower
And the best part, My Tripod! Yes as it attaches to straps on the bag...
Sigma 50 1.4
Sony 16-50 2.8
Sigma 50-150 2.8
Sigma 150 2.8 Macro
Sony 70-400 G
Metz 50 AF-1 Flash
Sirui N-1004 Tripod - Vanguard SBH-50 Ball Head
Kata 3n1 22 bag
I'll bite, but I hardly consider it bragging (you can accumulate quite a lot over the years doing this...bags included! That's a whole other thread!). Some people have one lens worth more than much of this put together. It's interesting once in a while to see what others are carrying/using.
I don't get it all in, but these are most in the rotation lately and in the bags most often in last month:
- Sony A57
- Sony 35mm f1.8
- Sony 85mm f2.8
- Tokina 11-16mm f2.8
- Metz 50 AF-1 or Sony HVL-F20AM
- Luma Loop sling strap
- Sony 18-135mm f3.5-5.6
- B+W UV MRC (010M) filters
- Sandisk Extreme Pro 32GB SDHC Class 10 UHS-1 x2
- Spare Sony NPFM500H battery
- Old Minolta wired shutter release
Out of the regular rotation for the Sony but still around and called to duty as needed:
- Sigma 18-250 DC OS HSM (needs firmware update for A57)
- Minolta 70-210 f4 "beercan"
- Minolta 50mm f1.7
- Sony 18-55mm kit lens
- Sony A33
- Bescor LED-70 light
- Opteka FB-20 Flash Bracket & IR remote control
- Rode VideoMic
- Manfrotto monopod & tripod
Much more Minolta gear since put out to pasture.
And that doesn't include the Canon gear...
When I leave for the racetrack I have A700,A900,A77 bodies, 16-80Z,24-70z, 70-200 Sony 2.8, Sony 70-400. 56 & 58 flashes RX100, Nex5, Hi Def Handycam, xtra batteries, memory, rechargeble AA.... and it's heavy.

on my wish list:

Sony A390 + Sony 55-200/4-5.6, plus Minolta 50/1.7 and Samsung EX-1 in my pockets; a bit of a pain with all the weight, and while the EX-1 isn't strictly necessary, everytime I've gone out with just the zoom or the prime I've ended up missing the other. Still, I should really upgrade my camera bag to something a bit larger, I think
I don't post much, but I read the post everyday on my lunchtime. (Pic by DSC-H55)
Here my everyday carry on weapon. I use to have the A700, it's been replaced by this more potent weapon.
Yay for show and tell.
Sony A65 with Sony 16-50
Sony A99 with Tamron 28-75
Sony 50 f1.4
Tamron 90 f2.8
Tamron 70-200 f2.8
Sony 58 flash
Various filters and accessories
Not shown in the photo are the Sony 18-55, Sony 75-300, and Sony 50 f1.8 are seldom used.
What kind of backpack is that? I would really like one to hold my 70400 plus a tripod inside of the backpack instead of the outside.
Thx for your time.
A77, 35mm 1.8, 18-135mm, B&W UV filters on both lenses, Zeikos Remote (cheap but works well). Bags are Tamrac, one conventional and one backpack style.
... and now a SAL 16-50mm as well.
In my M-Rock Arches Sling/backpack:
Sony 50 1.8
Sony 43 flash
Spare batteries, cards
Neck strap & sling strap
I think there are two different questions that one could answer:
1) what is in your bag in the sense "what do you own"
2) what are you actually taking with you when you go out.
The answer to number 2 is for me the more interesting one as I try to get away with as little as I possibly can. I own tons of lenses and accessories, but these days I try and travel light. You can check out some of my gear list by clicking my name.
So: I am at the moment at the airport and in my bag there is just the A77 with 16-50mm f2.8 lens and a rocket blower, plus lens pen. No flash, no extra lenses nor any of my other cameras including the A99.
For me personally travelling light is quite liberating. There is no need to debate which lens to use for what. I know that on this trip there is no sports nor macro photography. Therefore no long lenses or macro lenses needed. The remaining type of photography can be dealt with by using my two feet...
As I photograph extensively in my own studio I find it a nice challenge to try and shoot with available light, so no flash this time. As said before, taking too much gear means for me quite regularly missing opportunities as i concentrate too much on "how" to photograph something instead of on what to photograph at the right moment.
