Consider yourself lucky. I have the other aches and pains (as I've mentioned) AND an arthritic back. Just can't win, can I?
That makes three of us!!!! My list of medical Issues Could go On for pages.

Well, I can join the crowd of aches and pains. Arthritic knees and back that affect my photography, plus much more add to the list. Can't stoop low for some shots, carry lots of weight long, etc. I'm using the LowePro Slingshot 100 right now. It's jam packed. I don't know that I could carry it all if I had any of the long lenses you have here. I find I carry it only and not a purse if I'm going to be walking a lot.

Stick the drivers licence and car keysin the front of the slingshot, money ina pocket somewhere,and skip the rest ofthe purse's contents. The camera stuff is far more important! Only problem with this (my weekend configuration) is that I often forget to move the drivers licence back into my wallet. No big deal because the camera bag is always with me so it doesn't really matter what it's in.

this pack is to put it bluntly is HUGE. i've gotten everything in in it except the tamron 300/2.8 and the tak500/4.5 together i think i may be able to do it tho. it'll be a travel bag only because of the weight. now i know what plastic lenses are good for. i can see travling with this and maybe a smaller BP or BPack. it's good to know where everything is and you can pick and choose the days line up.

I have an Amvona Dynatran backpack that was a "free" bonus when I bought the Dynatran tripod. It is huge and I just use it for storage, the internal divider system is its weakest feature, not terribly well thought out.

this one has some really weird dividers. a couple i haven't figured out yet. i'd say packed it's 70+#. i doubt i'd get far with it. add a laptop & a tripod and rent a limo..
