So, the short answer to your question is I have a Canon 7D and a couple L lenses for photographing action, usually birds; a Canon 550D (T2i) as a walkaround semi-casual camera when I don't want the weight of the 7D and the L lenses; and a variety of Canon compacts for convenience and portability.  And a lousy smartphone camera (it's very old).  I use the compacts and smartphone by far the least.  The 550D with the kit lenses is very light, although not very small, and it takes fine photos if speed isn't essential.  The 7D is very heavy but still very fast and capable, like but not as good as the 5D3.  I'm tempted by the 6D for unsurpassed IQ, but will wait a little while.  I guess I go for capability and IQ over convenience, recognizing that in bright light and for non-moving subjects, you I can't tell the difference between output from a 5D3 and a good compact.
