Opps... didn't realize this was the 35mm forum at first.
will add that later.
Enjoyed reading what some of you fellows carry! =)
So far as 35mm goes, I have a small Tamrac bag containing a Minolta Maxxum 800si camera, Minolta 28-135 f/4-4.5 zoom, a Tamron 70-210mm f/4-4.5 zoom, a Minolta 50mm f/1.4, spare batteries, a couple of cleaning cloths, a bulb blower, a dep red filter, a light yellow filter, a deep yellow filter, a circular polarizing filter (all fitting the 50mm lens,) a Minolta penlight flashlight I was once given by the owner of a local camera store, a Bogen hexagonal tripod quick release plate, a pencil, a small notepad, a cheap plastic poncho, nine or ten rolls of Kodak Tri-X film in either Kodak or Arista.EDU packaging, a couple of rolls of Kodak Ektar 100 film and a granola bar.
If you're ever out photographing with me and I offer you a granola bar, it would be wise to think twice before accepting. I have no idea how old that thing is.
The minimalist kit consists of a Yashica Electro or a Petri E.Bn rangefinder and a couple of rolls of Tri-X in my pocket.
The really minimalist kit would be an Olympus Stylus or Konica Big Mini and whatever's in the camera already.
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming– “Wow! What a Ride!”

Oops- same here - I didn't see this was 35mm. When I shoot 35mm, it's either a Contax RTS III with 50mm f1.4, TLA 30 flash and off-camera sync cord, and if I'm shooting Infrared film, a Hoya RM72 filter, or the other 35mm kit is a Contax G1, a G2, 21mm, 28mm, 35mm, 45mm, and 90mm lenses, a TLA20 flash and off-camera sync cord. Plus at least 5 rolls of whatever film I'm shooting that day. Usually Ektar 100 for color.
normally I pocket a Weston with invercone as well a several Canon P or Leica M2.

Tomorrow before I go to work, I'm going to add a sandwich and an ID badge.
I have that Ari whoever bag (nice!), Nikon F6 with an original MIJ 50mm AF (no D), a converted Nikkor 105 2.5 P, Contax G2 with a 28mm on it. Plus-X, Velvia, and EFKE 50.
Film and cameras. Each bag has different format cameras and the appropriate film, lenses and filters.
