Currently, I have a small Lowepro Orion bag loaded with a Nikon FM2n, a 55mm 3.5 AI lens, a 28mm 2.8 AIS lens, and a 200mm 4.0 AIS lens. With a yellow filter and some Ilford FP4 film.
These first two bags I nearly always keep at home:
Canon 15mm Fisheye
Canon 24mm F1.4L
Canon 35mm F1.4L
Canon 50mm F1.2L
Canon 85mm F1.8
Canon 85mm F1.2L
Canon 135mm F2.8L
Canon 200mm F2.8L
Canon 16-35L F2.8
Canon 24-70L F2.8
Canon 70-200L F2.8 IS
Canon 100-400L F4.5 IS
This bag I take on shoots:
Canon EOS 5D Mark I DSLR, 8gb card
Canon EOS 1V SLR, with vert grip/booster, 36 Exp Tri-X loaded
Canon 580ex Flash, with Omni-bounce diffuser.
5 more rolls of Tri-X film
ND Grad filter
14 extra AA batteries
GPS device (Garmin Oregon 400t)
Never more then three total lenses, and which lenses I take are dependent upon what I'll be shooting. Nine times out of ten I bring just 2 primes.

Coming back home to my film roots. Canon EOS-3 SLR, Canon EOS 1V SLR, 580ex flash, and 5D DSLR shooter. Prime lens only shooter.
My main camera bag (a store-brand photo backpack) was becoming a catch-all. It took me longer to UNLOAD all the gear I didn't want to carry that day, so I stopped carrying a bag and would only carry one camera body and one lens.
Now I've switched everything into a wheeled toolchest, the red metal kind with the shallow drawers. Now all my gear is organized and accessible, and all my camera bags are empty.
That backpack is still my most-used bag, and I typically load it with an MZ-S, a K10D, a Sigma 24-135, Pentax 50/1.4, Sigma 24/2.8, Nikon SB-26 and SB-28, flash bracket, a roll of Ektar 100, Arista II (APX 400) and Superia 400, extra K10D batteries, circ pol for the 24-135 and 50, yellow filter for the 50.
My other camera is a Pentax
I normally use a billingham f4.5 bag with my Rolleicord Vb, lens-shade, several filters for bw and a gossen sixtomat lightmeter. For certain purposes I have a bilora bag with an Rolleicord Va, lens-shade and a hama selenium lightmeter.

Do Canon lenses tend to reproduce themselves if you keep two or more together?

If they do, I want you to teach my Nikon and Bronica glass to do the same thing! :-D
