Default Which bag for all my gear?

I'm thinking about purchasing a shoulder bag as I'm getting tired of carrying my backpack around all the time. I shoot sports for my school's web site and being an athletic trainer I get the luxury of being at most of the games. I like to have most of gear with me because you just never know!! This is what will be in the bag: 40D with grip, 1Ds, 85mm, 28-135mm, 70-200 2.8 IS, 100-400 an 430ex flash. Right now I'm looking at 3 bags, J-1, J-2 and F-2. I know the dimensions of the J-2 and F-2 are the same and I'm leaning more torwards one them. I'm used to having backpacks so this is all new to me. Thanks for advice.

Maybe a few pictures will help. This is actually an F-1 and F-2.

If i had that gear (And boy! I wish i did!), I'd go for the F-2. But then, that's just me. I use a Canon 5D with a battery grip and a 17-40 lens mounted, a 580EX II flash, a 70-300 zoom and other stuff that include an iPod, card reader, pens, a notebook and several other small items. However, I've yet to get a new bag for myself. But I've used the F-3X super compact before and I loved it. For the new gear, I'm considering the F-4AF pro shoulder bag. Any comments on this? Thank you very much.

Default Carry the Super Compact in a backpack

The F-2 will hold everything when you aren't shooting and it's easier to change lens, access flash and change data cards than with a backpack. But, it will be mostly empty when you are shooting with both cameras. It might be more practical to store gear in the backpack and then shoot with the smaller Super Compact, FX3.

The Compact also will probably fit inside the backpack along with a laptop, rain gear, etc. Just a thought. -jim

I had a F2 ballistic and now a canvas F-1.
The F-1 is not much bigger than F-2 in external size, but can hold a lot more. Courtesy of my girl friend Claire who worked on, I elected to withdraw the interior and one side of a 4 compartments insert and can perfectly protect my D3 with the 20-70 ready to go..
