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.

That's where we are all different, for me the sony NEX-6 with all that other paraphenalia is way over the top in weight and size, I prefer to have a single small belt bag and a small P&S in it.

And I'm sure someone else will call my kit way too cumbersome.

It does appear that the concept that everyone may have different priorities and requirements seems to go way over the head of a few people.
