My current camera bag contains:
- Nikon F4s for primary film (Fujicolor C200, cheapest colour neg film, and it works out great for what I want)
- Nikon SB-24 flash
- Vivitar 75-210 f/3.8 in place of flash when macro shooting
- Konica T3 for other film (Ilford FP4+ at the moment)
- Nikon 50mm f/1.8 AI-S
- Nikon 35-70mm f/2.8 AF
- Konica Hexanon 50mm f/1.7
- Konica Hexar 135mm f/3.5
- Maglite pen torch
- Assortment of various filters
- Extra film, different speeds and makes - both B&W and colour neg
Additionally, the Konica setup may be excluded for the space of four cold Tuborg Gold beer cans.
- Konica T3N
- Konica FS-1
- Nikon F4s
- Nikon F5
- Nikon F801

Minolta SRT-101, SRT-102 bodies
58mm f/1.4 Rokkor
24mm f/2.8 Rokkor
135mm f/2.8 Rokkor
70-210mm f/3.5 Vivitar Series 1
2x Kiron Teleconverter
Assorted goodies (lens cleaning stuff, cable releases, penlight, notebook...)
Just toss in a few rolls of film, grab my ol' Tiltall, and I'm good to go!
Nikon 35/1.4 AI-S
Nikon 105/2.5 AI-S
+ a filter or two, plus another roll or two
The same roll has been inside F3 for about five months now, but I am still taking it with me every single day. Something will break - either the rut I am in or my back, and it won't be the latter.
One bag, the biggest, has the Nikkors....two other smaller ones have Canon lenses in one and "others" in the other...no bodies in them...they don't get bagged unless I'm taking one lens on one body and have various size bags for the different lenses I may take.

Mostly Canon, and for the wrong reason.
Back in the day,I had a. canon A-1 and several nice lenses. When I decided to come back, I asked if I could use my FD lenses on the new EOS cameras. I was also considering going Nikon.
I was told there was an adapter, so without much more thought I bought a Canon EOS camera, and a couple of lenses. In the end, the FD adapter is a monstrosity. But now I have canon kit again. But one of the lenses is a Tair 11a, M42 manual lense, that I always take. 20 iris blades, if for nothing else it is a discussion starter at the bar.

Out for a walk around the neighborhood, so travelling light: into the baby Billingham go an M6 w/a Summilux ASPH and 35mm and 90mm "crons in the side pockets. A couple of rolls of HP5+ in case I see anything really interesting...
An assortment of F-series Nikons with quite a few Nikkors, a pair of M6s with some Leitz glass, a pair of 500c/ms with a wide range of Zeiss optics and, just to help keep Duracell solvent, a D800.
