The sad truth is a FF kit may only weight a little more. There's a lot of hype of weight, like the below exaggeration.

18 cuft fridge with electric cord compared to an ice chest?

An exact comparison is whether a 170 lb male would want to carry 2 lbs (172 lbs total) or 4 lbs (174 lbs total)

That's a 10% weight difference. One that a healthy person shouldn't even notice. But you get a lot more than 10% improvement in performance.

What ???   lol...they most certainly do...have a LOT to do with the tool. Do you carry a floor jack in the trunk of your car ?   Do you take an 18 cu.ft. fridge with you on an afternoon picnic ?

Small is nearly always many items, including most photographic equipment. (except reflectors)    etc....

Small = lower performance by definition unless you're backpacking. Small = slower lens, less flash power, less battery life, fewer controls, slower operation.

What size car do you drive? What size house do you live in? What size fridge do you have?

Clearly, there is not agreement here on this thread as to how the OP defined his term "versatile".
