I use a big pelican case to load in and store speedlights, batteries, etc.

I stash it and lock it and use Think Tank City Walker 30 on my shoulder all day

For what? I use a two bag system for weddings - a Think Tank roller as my mobile base camp and a TT Lens Changer 3 bag which is always on me. I use a TT Retrospective 5 shoulder bag if I'm just out shooting for myself with a minimum of gear.

Not sure how big you need, but we use this one often:

Canon 200EG

Currently consists 2 bodies 5D with 5 lenses (24-70, 70-200, 35/50/85) 2 flashes, Batts and lots of Batts for camera and flash. All the camera/flash accesories. I sometimes rent lenses too if potential client want some wide angles or fish eyes look.

Both.

I work out of a Domke F-6 which holds camera, lenses, batteries and memory cards. And use A Pelican im2500 to hold lightstands, speedlights, umbrellas, batteries, and backup camera with lens.

Retro30 from Thinktank. Holds 4-5 lenses, 2 flashes, and all sorts of doodads that I need.

I carried the Retro Lens Changer 3 for every 2013 wedding, but thinking about switching to the Retro30 to have some extra room for 2014. I'm assuming the Retro30 is similarly easy to change lenses super quick?

Been using the the Tamrac 614 for 6+ years. Takes a licking and keeps on ticking! Carries all my lenses except the 80-400 and 300mm f4. Maybe too large for weddings (which I don't do).

This all depends on how much you intend to put in the bag. Asking for the perfect bag is like asking for the perfect automobile. The question by itself is far too vague to be of any use. The answer is almost always "it depends".

That said, for an average wedding-size camera kit, the Retrospective 30 (which I own) is a fine bag that I recommend completely.

I started out with Lowepros. Then moved to Crumplers. 3MDH, 5MDH and 7MDH. Really like Crumpler stuff.
But lately I've gone for light-weight non-descript bags.

So picked up a brown canvas style bag. Kinda like this dude. Minus the weaponary and german shepherd.

Another vote for the Retrospective 30. I have the exact Nikon equivalent of your setup (2 bodies, 24-70, 70-200, 35/50/85) and it fits quite nicely. If it would fit more gear, it would be too heavy.

I use a huge Pelican to store everything in my home, and a "Think Tank - Street Walker Hard Drive" bag for gigs.

It's perfect for me, I didn't want something very big but didn't want to go without certain lenses. Also, it fits (easily) on an airplane.

what I carry depends on where I am going and what I am doing, I have a large divided pelican roller case, but if I am going out and about, I condense down to a backpack which is not the best out there but it gets the job done. I recently tried out another bag, but returned it when I realized it didn't have padding in the area of the bag I intended to place the camera. I think it is quite normal to continue to find the best thing that works for you and as you change or add equipment, you have to accommodate your equipment.

Seems like Thinktank retrospective 30 has the most votes. I will take a look this weekend.
