I'm a ThinkTank/Lowepro guy. Well-built, been around for years, plenty of form factors to chose from. My words of wisdom: consider bags/systems that will grow as your gear grows ('cuz it most likely will). The ThinkTank below holds a trinity of lenses, (one with a body attached) lots of accessories, AND a 15" MacBook Pro. Took the whole mess to Alaska; shot all day and did my post work each night. This bag carries with handles or a shoulder strap. ThinkTank sells optional straps to convert these to a sudo-back pack (handy when you need both arms/hands free).

I also have a Photo Recon sling bag from from Hazard 4. It packs nearly anything the other bag can, but also has space for your 300-600mm long lenses (no room for your MBP, though).

Not a well known brand, but definitely worth a look: https://www.hazard4.com/packs/sling-packs/photo-recon.html
Finally, my favorite one or two lens, walk'n around town bag, is a ThinkTank Digital Holster. It's available in a few sizes and does this neat trick where the bottom extends or collapses to accommodate whatever lens you brought with you (from a 50mm to a 70/200mm). It will also carry two smaller lenses--say a 50 and a 24/70 (with one attached to the body). These carry by the handle or shoulder strap, but also on an optional, padded belt system.
Final word of advice: stay away from trendy/hip/fashion bags (Peak Design, and their ilk)--your gear should last longer than whatever's hip, next season ;- )
