ThinkTank Retrospective 10 http://www.thinktankphoto.com/products/retrospective-10-pinestone-shoulder-bag.aspx

Not a sling bag but a shoulder bag, most comfortable strap I ever used, superbly made and very functional.

If you really really want a sling style then I'd look at the ThinkTank TurnStyle 20. http://www.thinktankphoto.com/products/turnstyle-20-charcoal-sling.aspx But I haven't used one.
Never look down on anybody, unless you are helping them up.

+1 on the Retrospective and the comfort of the strap.  I have a Retrospective 7.

I also have a Kata 3n1 that I used with a 50d, 10-22, 15-85 and 70-200 f/4IS.  I was able to use it as the bag was intended to be used by its design.  Frankly, however, the shoulder straps were just no that comfotable for me and when I moved up to FF with heavier gear, I did not consider getting a larger one.  The problem with all sling bags is comfort (I also used a Lowepro Singshot with my Rebel many years ago).  If the Fastpack is not working for you, I don't think any sling type of bag would either.

Just today, I had my 70-200 f/2.8IS, my Speedlight and my EF-100L 2.8 Macro in the Retrospective 7 with my 5diii and the 24-105 in a Crumpler 3 million with the straps crossed in front of me (like bandoliers).  This setup worked, though it was kind of awkward.  I really looked at a lot of backpacks, but still have not found a better solution.

Turnstyle might be too small for all that gear. Maybe Think Tank's Sling-O-Matic?
