Not much...like I said, I use a small waist pack, and that includes a 70-200/2.8, a 24-105, a 15mm fisheye and a 35/1.4.

More than 8 lb of gear, even if held by a thin string does not describe my idea of small and light. OTOH, something like a Sony NEX-6 with 10-18mm f/4 OSS, 20mm f/2.8, 35mm f/1.8 OSS and 50mm f/1.8 OSS offers a far more practical, small and light set of camera and lenses for walk around, about 2 lb. It is something that won't get in the way while stopping for a family dinner on the way either.

Talk about gear getting in the way. You have three lenses that only partially cover the range of the 24-105/4.

Note that you are missing almost the entire range covered by the 70-200/2.8 zoom. Drop that lens out of the pack and it gets a lot lighter and he still has more focal length flexibility than your kit.

Apples and oranges here.

Agreed.
