That has my 3N1-30 beat by a long shot. I don't think I'd be able to pick that one up if I got it fully loaded - the 3N1-30 can be packed too heavily for me to carry safely (I'm tiny).

It is crazy heavy, going to a wedding it has the 5DmkII, 5D (both are gripped), 1DmkIII, Canon 24-105mm f4 L IS, Canon 70-200mm f2.8 L IS, Canon 85mm f1.8, Canon 50mm f1.8, Sigma 24-70, Canon 580exII flash, 580ex flash, 430ex flash, then all the other stuff, 6x spare sets of flash batteries, cleaning, memory etc etc etc..... I really should work out the weight as I think I might shock myself.

Oh, so that I'm not totally stealing this thread (hope it isn't taken that way) this bag of FPs looks like a really cool solution when you don't want to carry much but protect a decent lens.

I agree - that's the first holster style (more or less) bag that I've seen that'll take a big lens. I'll have to keep that in mind - there's times I want to just take a long lens and have to resort to the -30 because my long lenses won't fit in any of my holsters (I have two). Great find!

I've been reading some photography books recently, one has a picture (of course a really cool picture) and then a story about the picture along with what equipment the photographer used to take it. He's always using strobes, softboxes and other external lights and stands. I think about his comment that it folds down into a small duffle and then imagine me hiking or walking around town with all that extra equipment. Forget it. You list of 5 good-sized lenses isn't as intimidating as all the rest of it - the 3 large heavy cameras, all those flash units etc. is well beyond my carrying capability!
