What goes out the door with me every day:
Domke F-5XB RuggedWear
Leica M6 Panda
Leitz Summicron 35mm IV
Leitz Summicron 50mm III
A few rolls of Tri-X, Ilford XP2 or BW400CN
A roll or two of color negative film
Minolta Auto Meter V F
B+W color filters: 023 Yellow/Orange, 061 Green, 041 Red
Kodak 5x4" gray/white card
Extra battery for M6
Wallet, iPhone, Business cards
Ocasionally I'll bring along a DSLR and that will add (to my shoulder):
Contax Zeiss 28/2.8
Shimada C/Y-to-EOS adapter
Shimada C/Y-to-M adapter in the bag
If I need super wide, I'll put the 10-22 on the 20D and just stow the Zeiss 28mm and adapters for use on either body.
I have other bags like a large f.64 and a Lowepro EliteAW for larger assignments but lately I've been all about the small Domke, one body and two lenses.
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.
