Last time I used the A2E I had the Zeiss 35mm f/2 ZE, Sigma 12-24, Sigma 24-70 f/2.8 HSM and EF 70-200 f/4L IS. And the other stuff - film, polarizers, hoods, etc.
Walmart fanny pack is my usual "bag." In it I typically carry film, hand-me-down wife's makeup brushes, a few cotton swabs, little notebook, pen, 2.75 reading glasses for lens cleaning and such, maybe an extra lens if I am shooting my FED2d or Sp1000 or SWT605; my other main cameras are fixed-lens RFs (Yashica Lynx 14E and Minolta A5). I have a Lowepro EX 140 bag I use if I tote a second camera ...
Today I have in a Lowepro Stelth 100 bag, a Canon F1N-AE body and FD lenses-: 100mm f2, 35mm f2,and 20mm f2.8, a Sekonic L 358 meter,and two rolls of Fuji Velvia 100
In my ninja 4x5 bag - lowepro fastpack 100:
4 film holders
busch pressman D with 150/5.6 Symmar-S
90/8 Super Angulon
Minolta XD11 with either 20 or 24 and 50mm lenses
Minolta flash meter III, loupe, release cable, other accessories
In the side pocket I stash a tiny Slik tripod and loop the panhead handle into the loop at the top of the bag.
I've got another bag coming, which will probably hold my RZ67 and/or EOS 3.
I have a re-useable Publix shopping bag (Publix is a large grocery outlet in the Southeastern United States) that I put my stuff in. 99 cents and holds EVERYTHING, I just wear my body.
Granted I usually have a Sony bag with all my lenses in it, and there are many....
28mm f2.8 Rokinon
28mm f3.5 Nikkor H
35mm f2.8 Nikkor
50mm f1.8 Series E Nikkor
55mm-135mm Vivitar Tele-Zoom
those are just film lenses in the bag, not to mention
75-300 Canon L lens, L as in "el cheapo"
All my cleaning supplies and probably 20 different filters.
If there were ever a contest to see how much equipment you could fit in a small bag I would have you all beat hands down, there was a time I was stuffing my Rebel in with all that before I bought my Nikkormat FT.
If I am careful with arrangement I can fit the Sony bag with lenses and both camera bodies with zoom lenses in the Publix bag and wear my Rebel XTi around me.

Throwing the GS-1 into the bag, as today I'm going down to the customs office to retrieve my new waist-level finder.
Don't use a bag. I have a medic cargo pants picked up at supply depot, that I lined the knee pockets with foam. when shooting analog, I have only my EOS3, and 28-135mm lens which remains around my neck. Only 72mm polarizer is in my pocket.
When I shoot digital, I shoot either a canon 10D with same lens as above, or nikon D40 with kit 18-55mm, and SB400 on camera. I keep my 35mm f/1.8 DX prime in the lined pocket. Other pockets wouuld have:
1) Lens Pen
2) 512MB memory card
3) Exra camera battery
4) 2X AA battery for SB400
5) 52mm polarising filter
No wonder I shoot more film

The camera/cameras will depend on what my plans are, however the things I'm pretty compulsive about having in the kit are:
Hot shoe level and small non-hot shoe level.
Small flash light/magnifying glass
Extra battery and nylon washer for removing the battery cap
Small bottle of alcohol with cotton balls
OEM lens hood for which ever lens/lenses I'm using
Quick release plate and allen wrench
Notebook and pen
Make up brush
and in the back of my SUV
Four bean bags to use aa a support of to keep things from moving around
There probably are a few other things however that gets most of it.
