I didn't pick his lenses. He picked his own, to advertise what he fits in a "small waist" belt. I picked mine, for focal lengths, I would normally carry which generally is about small, fast primes. If you want to take up the challenge, what kind of weight and size are you looking at with lenses to match the FoV I mentioned with a FF body?

Who cares about weight? I thought we were originally talking about image versatility?

Versatility of anything isn't about considering a select piece of the entire makeup. It is something's ability to adapt easily to several different situations.

Exactly, making my original (from the first thread) argument even stronger.

Not really. Because your argument was one-dimensional whereas versatility is about being multi-dimensional. And generally speaking, Jack of all trades and master of none is better representative of versatility.

My argument is one dimensional in the sense that I'm only referring to image versatility. That said, it's really the only criteria that matters for a photographer, right?

Really, in this discussion i think versatility should include a comprise in image quality too because if it didn't then following your argument you would be arguing for shooting on medium format, and if you find most medium format cameras too large to carry then you would be looking at purchasing a Leica S camera at around $20K for lens and camera (which, off  the top of my head, gets you what, around ten Nikon D800 cams?)
