The way I see it, I can waste a lot of time at the gym trying to keep in shape, OR, I can just lug my gear around and improve my photog skills at the same time.

(I carry the 8lb. dumbell with my left hand as a counter-balance :D )

7lb. 7oz.

The Adventure Aquarium (Camden, NJ) has a scale where you can see how much you weigh compared to a bunch of sharks. I had my Lowepro backpack filled up with a bunch of stuff (including my 100-400) so I placed the bag on the scale and I believe it weighed in at around 25 pounds. Forgot what shark weighed that much :)

fully decked out it weighs around 50+ lbs. (includes 2 bodies, macbook pro, tripod), it's okay since the backpack feels balanced and weight is distributed evenly. Without the tripod and another body it barely gets through airport check-in.

It depends on how far and long I have to carry it. :)

Time and distance seem to make the equipment get heavier.

A cardinal rule is, "the more that you like a lens, the heavier it is".

I don't want to weigh it. Too heavy!!

My bag (a roller) holds way too much. I actually posted a packing movie of me packing up my bag before a shoot (stop motion). http://www.youtube.com​/watch?v=lH_0gYpfQUQexternal link

I usually shoot with two 5D Mk II (both have battery grips), one usually have the 70-200/2.8L IS and the other the 16-35/2.8L, one on each shoulder.

After a full day wedding, I'm pretty worn out.

Too much!

I don't know what the grand total is, but my bag fully configured with my normal carry kit, weighs between 20 and 24lbs.

That's a gripped body, 3-4 Ls, 2-3 580 EXs, filters, knife, light meter, etc..

My bag weighs 17.6 pounds with everything in it.

When I go out shooting I usually leave a lot of it at home, or in my hotel room if I am traveling.

Typically it means I just carry the 7D with 15-85 mounted, 70-200 2.8 IS II, one spare battery, a couple of CPL's and a GND, Rocket blower, Lens Pen, and microfiber cloth.

I take out both flashes, 50mm 1.8, 11-16mm, camera battery charger, spare AA's, AA charger, HDMI cable, various other cables, card reader, wireless remote, IR remote, etc
