Generally, I just have a Minolta X-700 w/ a 50mm, Tri-X and filters. I like to keep it light and manageable unless I have something specific that I'm shooting.
If I bring the Spotmatic, I'll have a Luna Pro 6, a 50mm, a 35mm, Tri-X and filters.
Just updated my bag: Bronica ETRS, cheep flash that I broke the other day till I get a new one. Rolls and rolls of HP5+, and 400VC.
My second "bag" contains my Speed Graphic, Flashbulbs, flashgun, HP5+, and 5 carriers.

4x5 Speed Graphic, Looking for another 8x10.
Um! I don't have a camera bag although I do have more than 10 cameras.
Nikon F100 + 24-85 mm lens, Olympus OM4Ti + 24 mm lens with IR film, and Xpan with 45mm lens.
Today, my insulated lunch bag/camera bag held it's usual kit - Koni-Omega Rapid Omega M, a 120 back, 58mm and 90mm Omega lens, the accessory finder for the 58mm and a meter - lately my Gossen Digisix.
Plus some 120 film (Plus-X mainly) and cannisters to hold the exposed rolls.

I have 11 camera bags and 7 hard cases. I couldn't possibly list everything!
When I travel, by air I usually carry my Hassey, three lens, a light meter, and an extra back.

I have two camera bags that are generally ready to go at all times.
Bag #1 is for work (and belongs to my employer): Canon 20D, 50mm f/2.5 macro, kit lens (18-55mm, I believe), Nikon SB-600, two batteries, two sets of flash batteries, extra quick release plate, one gig CF card in camera, extra 512 meg CF card. (I shoot nothing but small jpegs.) The bag is a medium-sized Canon bag. My Bogen 3036 always comes along as well, and so does my Sunpak 555 sometimes.
Bag #2 is for spur of the moment shooting, when I just need to grab something and go: Two unloaded Canon FD bodies (usually an old F-1 and either an FTb or an AE-1P), 55mm f/1.2, 28mm f/2.0. Two rolls HP5 or Tri-X (Arista Premium 400 at this time), two rolls Delta 3200, and two rolls Fuji Press 800 are always in the bag at room temperature, and I usually grab some cold film before I leave the house. The bag is a smallish toiletries bag (about 10x5x5 inches) with a side zipper pocket. All this stuff is crammed into it pretty tightly. Oh yeah! The most important thing: a SHARPIE!

I have bags of varying size, and in some focal lengths both slow and fast lenses.

If the CV15mm is at home whan I need it, too bad.
If you look like a tourist with a small digi bag people tend to ignore you.
My Domke F-1x
always holds these:
Gossen Luna Pro SBC
81B, Polarizer, UV filter
Loads of HP5+ and APX100
and sometimes these:
NP400PR & RDPIII
MacBook plus cables, HDDs etc.
I have far too many cameras and like to take as many as possible with me at once. I can select from:
Nikon 20-35 f/2.8, 80-200 f/2.8, 50 1.8, 300 f4
Olympus Trip 35
Olympus Stylus Epic, Zoom 140, Wide Zoom 80 (28-80)
I don't generally use a meter with the Rollei, I do have a Sekonic L-208 but I can't be bothered taking it most of the time, relying instead on Sunny 16. I don't have any filters for the rollei but have a set of grads and red + orange for the 35mm kit.
Film: Slowly getting rid of a selection of 20 different types of film I had. Can't get good at it doing that. Hope soon to just have FP4, HP5, Delta 3200 and maybe a little Pan F, plus Portra and Superia 400 for colour. Still have left about 50 rolls of various stuff that's starting to annoy me :-)
