I guess this has been discussed many times before. i just got a nice and big Canon 200DG. So I tried to configure it to fit my 60D with 18-200 mounted plus a few other things. I figured if I let the camera sit on its bottom, it will take too much real estate. So I have it to sit on the left side and the grip side facing up. Is there any risk of causing body damage over time? Thanks!

Only risk (and this is any bag with any lens), is if you carry the body with the lens on, and you fall, you have a higher probability of damaging the body and the lens.

I carry my camera this way, but also have it insured and I don't shoot for a living. I would not even bring it up, but your concern is around equipment safety, so I thought I would mention it.

I don't want to remove the lens all the time so I figured to keep the lens on all the time. Thank you for your advice. I guess I should call my insurance company to ask about the insurance even though my stuff does not worth a lot yet.

I would. Insurance is based on the value of the item, so if it's worth less, it cost less. It you call whomever you have car or home insurance with, and tack it on, it's very cheap.

My policy covers anything. I drop it, I leave it in a cab, whatever. To give you an example of cost, I just called yesterday and added my new $900 Sigma 35mm 1.4 to my policy. Cost me $14 a year.

$1.17 a month to never have to worry about it again, is worth it to me :)

EDIT: That's also with 0 deductible. However they only covers things over I think $100, so if I leave my bag in the car, it won't cover all the odds and ends.
