Have a look at the Tamrac Velocity series bags. They carry like a sling and have a stowable waist strap for more aggressive riding. They are very stout and give a decent amount of protection without being too clunky. I have the Velocity 8 which will handle 5D + 70-200 2.8. If your not going telephoto, you can get away with a 6 or 7.

I am using the Velocity 8 for 5DMKIII 16-35 (and usuall have add. space for the 70-300L or 35mm+50mm
Very handy to swing it from your back to the front, open the zipper, take out camera, shoot, put back the camera and swing it back on your back

addendum: there's been a lot of speculation and surprise at price.  I suspect the existence of decent cheap 3rd party competitors eg, Tamzooka might at least keep Canon from going off the rails as far as price

You think so..would you not? I think Canon is counting on those loyal red ring fanboys/girls...

Summer visitors, immature male ruby throated hummingbird and an American goldfinch. Both shot with 5DMKIII + 600 II and 1.4X III, f8 - loaded the DLO for this combo and applied.

Both are great Vern!

.............For the 70-300L, I got the Tripod Ring C – that allows me to support the rig from underneath and places my fingers at the zoom ring.

+1 - got it as well.
It is just very practical

My 8 year old son yesterday at the local zoo.

400mm, f4.0, ISO800, 1/1000.

That's just beautiful.
I still hope for my children to pick up passion for photography...
It's more football and violin....

Here is a shrunk pano I made on the 14th of June, 2014 from the Adler Planetarium at sunrise.  It's 10 shots from an EOS-M with a 24-70 on the EF lens adapter.

It is a great pano - nice sky / moment of the day!

Just a little conclusion, all time i work with 24-105 - 85mm 1.8 - 70-200 is mk ii sometime 70-300
I have very appreciate to work with the 50mm you can take a picture at different distance , all time you have a nice shot,
The Sigma is amazing lens !  My next fashion shoot i will alternate with the 50mm art and 85mm and 70-200
For me the best way for portrait is 85mm ! maybe my next lens is Sigma 85 Art  or Maybe  Canon if if ...

I mus say, I am curious for the 85mm f/1.4 Art as well. I am sure I will rent it and try it out. In the menatime I enjoy the 50A very much.
