This is not correct.  HKG separates arrivals and departures and there is no way around it. After deplaning, you must pass through a security check to get through to the departures side. 

 

I've never seen them scrutinize bag size at the transit security posts

Airport Security is a domestic sized rollaboard.  It will attract attention on international flights.  I would stick with the Airport International.

 

If you are flying business class with Cathay, ticket agents (airport counter) will give you a tag to get an oversized bag through security.  This is only an issue if you have left the airport and have to clear security.  If you're just transiting in HKG, it's not a problem.

Have had good luck with ThinkTank Airport International, http://www.thinktank...camera-bag.aspx, with camera and lenses in a small Lowepro backpack.  Only ever had problems with Qantas out of Cairns.
