I am down to FOUR total bags. Each of them work so amazingly well for my Sony kit, I wanted to make sure that everyone takes a look.

Sony A7RIII x2
Sony 12-24 G f4
Zeiss Batis 25 f2 Distagon
Sony 35 f1.4 Distagon ZA
Sony 50 f1.4 Planar ZA
Sony 55 f1.8 Sonnar ZA
Sony 85 f1.4 GM
Flashpoint R2 Speedlight V860II-S


1. Shoulder Bag SMALL
Peak Design 5L Sling
For 1 body and attached lens, 1 extra lens or speedlight
One could go with the Domke F5xb instead of this bag, they are VERY similar in size.
I don't see the benefit of going with a F5xa instead, sure it's a little smaller. But it can only fit 1 body, 1 smallish lens, couldn't fit my longer ones! The F5xb or the 5L is not much bigger, and they are far more versatile.
You could fit the 35 1.4 mounted. B25 and Z55 next to it, stacked. But if the 35 wasn't mounted, you wouldn't be able to store the camera and other two lenses inside.

Note: this bag and the Domke F5xb are similar sizes as an Ona Bowery, which I think is a little "too cute" for a guy - to be honest. The Ona has the one center latch, and therefore, if there are a few things in it, I don't think the flap does a good enough job. A lens could sneak out of the corners b/c of the center latch. The Domke F5xb is the same exact size and secures better

2. Shoulder Bag MEDIUM
Domke F-3X
For all of my gear - somehow!
This bag has pockets on the end for a water bottle and/or flash/personal items
The review of the 5L above, also displays this F-3X,
But here is a review on the F-3X packed up a little differently

3. Backpack SMALL
Vista S
Fits all of my gear minus one body, with very little space for personal items or two bodies, and many lenses and personal items.
This bag is not perfect. And it's expensive. But it just flat out works. There are times you can't use a shoulder bag, but don't need a giant backpack, this bag fits the bill.
It's tiny, it has good padding. It is under 2lbs, so it's so light, you don't miss the waist/sternum strap. Most camera backpacks are 4lbs +.
Even if you don't like this exact bag, you may get inspiration from watching this. This is a SMALL backpack, but it fits all your gear
They are coming out with their new version in a month or two, Vista II.

4. Backpack MEDIUM
Zkin Yeti
For all of my gear minus one body with adequate space for personal items or two bodies, and many lenses and personal items.

If you have the perfect bag, for any occasion, you won't mind carrying your gear with you. But you do not need 15 bags, like some do here, to get it done.
FOUR!

Other bags:

Peak Design Sling 10L
I feel it's too large for mirrorless stuff. Too much float.
My only reviews on this bag are from my DSLR days
Two reviews:

Brevite Backpack
I feel it's entry is a little too small for my previous days, D850.
This may be a perfect bag for mirrorless, but I sold it a while back
