    -a couple filters

    I take it your second bag is your abstract/creative setup ;)

    As for me all my kit currently fits in one bag - though I don't tend to carry it all when out and about - just no need to have it all, but I like having the option - anyway:
    Bag - Lowepro minitrekker AWII

    Canon 400D + attached battery grip
    400D kit lens (17-55mm) I keep it since its my only wider angle lens
    Canon 70-200mm f2.8 IS
    Sigma 150mm macro
    Canon 1.4TC + 2*TC
    Sigma 1.4TC + 2*TC
    Speedlite 580M2
    Lumiquest softbox
    Memory cards
    polarizer filter for 70-200mm
    Spare pair of batteries for 400D
    Spare batteries for flash
    Battery chargers (AA flash battery recharger + camera battery charger)
    Cleaning kit (wipes, microfibre cloth, lens cleaning fluid)
    Rocket blower
    Optech raincover
    Waterbottle (held on outside)

    That is the standard kit - this is the kit I can add if I choose to:
    Manfrotto focusing rail
    Manfrotto 3way tripod head (I forget which modle, but a basic level one nothing flashy)
    Screwdriver (for tripod head changing)
    055XPROB tripod - its optinal because many times I just prefer to have the freedom of handheld and not carry a heavy tripod.
    Manfrotto Monopod

    That's it so far - though its the bag filled to the max - only just enough room for waterproofs for myself. Hoping to add more lenses so I will probably have to cut down on the teleconverters - at the moment the bag sits holding it all so its ready for pretty much any trip out - in the future I can see I will have to plan ahead!

    My everyday bag contains either a 20D or 5D with one lens (18-55 f/2.8 for the 20D, and either a 17-35 f/2.8-4 or 50mm f/1.4 for the 5D), one flash (430EX or 580EX), a couple of CF cards, 2 extra camera batteries, 4 AA batteries, lens cloth, rubber bands, and a few white index cards. Sometimes I add a circ pol filter and/or a flash remote to that. All of this fits in a tiny bag. I have to haul big cases and bags of gear for work, so when I'm shooting for recreation I like to keep it small, light, and simple.
