    Default Covering a Wedding - Which bag to use?

    Hi, I am going to bring along my 40D + 24-70mm f/2.8L, 70-200 f/4L IS and 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5. Any recommendation on how to carry these lenses? One bag? A couple of bags? Pouches? Thanks for the advice.

    Edit: Will be bring along one 580EX also. Maybe one more extra 550EX.

    Have a Mini Trekker already. But it's a little not too convenient to carry a backpack for weddings, isn't it?

    Yup. Our choice of lenses is almost identical.

    Are you able to carry all your lenses and body with this bag + pouch? Any space for the flash?

    i am doing backup for a wedding this sun, would be the 1st time that i use the Stealth with all the lenses..shouldn't be a problem save for the 70-200..that would be abit too long.. i have an optech lens soft pouch.. will use that...

    The last time i could put a 30D with grip, 17-85 mounted, 50mm f/1.8 and 580EX, plus a nalgene bottle n some cleaning kit stuff with no problems

    My main bag is the compurover, no way am i gonna use that for wedding AD..sure knock into things

    i don't think u will be carrying the bag and changing the lens on the move right? but if u are, then i think a sling bag or a waist carrier will be better.

    True. My only gripe is the 70-200 f/4L IS, which is a little too long to fit in most of the bags.

    OK. Will visit the shops and check out the pouches. Let's hope it's not gonna be that expensive.
