Focus adjustments on 645D

This is my first posted question, so my appologies if it's been answered elsewhere. I am waiting for my 645D to arrive so I haven't been able to read a manual for it yet. I've read about Canon/Nikon bodies that can adjust for back focusing using a lens callibration system like Datacolor DC SLC100.

Does the 645D have this ability?

I'd also like to know what you are using for bags to carry the 645 and at least 3 lenses.

I have an old LowePro Mini Trekker with all of the dividers thrown out. I put the lenses (35mm, 120mm, and 300mm) in Think Tank Lens Changers and attached to their thin belt with on extra Lens Changer bag for the 55mm which is usually mounted on the body. I have a Goretex stuff sack for the camera and I throw the whole lot into the LowePro. When I work, I put on the belt with the lenses and the camera around my neck with an empty LowePro on my back.

Thanks Yamanobori, I have some bad ballance problems, so a backpack centered on my back is certainly better than a heavy shoulder bag throwign my wieght off to one side. Plus I'll be able to use a monopod/walking stick without the shoulder bag getting in the way.

Frank, I also like the Think Tank modular system because the weight is shifted to my hips and it is easier to move and balance and it is not so hard on your back. The pouches themselves use thinner padding which keeps down their volume and they have a rain cover that keeps out rain and dust.
