The standard case I use covers most assignments. Here's what I carry, which is good for most portrait, advertising/lifestyle, and event assignments that I cover. And yes, this all fits in the one case, though normally one or two lenses are removed as per the requirements of each assignment.
♦ Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III body with two rechargeable batteries
♦ Canon EOS-5D battery with two rechargeable batteries, L tripod plate, AA battery insert
♦ RS-80N3 Remote Release
♦ Various bubble levels
♦ Assorted masked focusing screens
♦ Assorted CF cards in protective cases
♦ Canon 430 EX flash with spare batteries
♦ Metz 54 MZ-3 backup flash, Canon adapter with spare batteries
♦ Flash accessories (Lightsphere, Stoffen, Big Bounce)
♦ ST-E2 Speedlite transmitter
♦ USB tether cables for computer
♦ Lens cleaner, sensor cleaner, cleaning cloths, Giotto air blower
♦ One gray card and one white balance kit for color balance, one mini Macbeth color checker chart
♦ Minolta Flash Meter IV
♦ Color meter if balancing in mixed-light environments and adding gels to lights
♦ Flashlight, Allen wrenches, jeweler's screwdrivers, gaffer's tape

When necessary, I rent super-wides, other tilt-shift lenses, long zooms, or white lens telephotos.
