Out of curiosity, is it possible to put a nikon sensor on a canon camera?

A 24-70 f/2 would be very nice!
Do you have issues just using your 580EX II's on your camera and via Canon optical triggering.
The PocketWizard issue, that they tried to blame on Canon, was due to their "overclocking" the IGBT circuit, it was not an issue for people who didn't use Pocket Wizards and it resulted in the flash tube damage, not battery housing and door.
I absolutely don't trust Yongnuo, third party reverse engineering is fraught with problems and if I had one issue with it once I wouldn't give them a second chance.
If they are still under warranty I'd class them as lemons and demand an exchange. If they are not then I'd sell them and upgrade to the 600-EX-RT's, which are good value when compared to any other flash and full wireless triggering system out there. If you can't afford the 600 then I'd be tempted to go all YN, there are less issues with all one make, though there are lots of third party options to choose from, Godox, Phottix etc etc.
If it is only a problem when you use the YN's then why blame Canon? Yongnuo are a bargain basement, third party, reverse engineered, Chinese hack, with zero quality control and a huge catalog of problems and issues that impact complete models or are limited to a short production run, they have their place but you seem to have a bad set.
In all seriousness, did you ever think about the ThinkTank shoulder bags? All their stuff is amazing, but not cheap (I have the Shape Shifter from them). I think their site is thinktankphoto.comAs I said in my opening post, the ThinkTank Retrospective 7 is one of the ones I am considering.
Actually there are quite a few Youtube reviews for the ThinkTank Retrospective series which have been worth watching. But I could only find one video review of the Tamrac Apache 4.
so is this close to what you're looking for?
Well, no one is going to mistake it for a camera bag.... our lenses would fit in it....and it *would* be difficult to steal and run away with.....
I think we have a winner!
It is interesting that Canon policy is to fix certain issues out of warranty (5D3 light leak, 5d mirror fix, 200 F2 IS issue with 5D3) while keeping other issues a secret...
