When my wife and I used to go to the park, I wouldn't bring my DSLR, because it meant bringing my camera bag along with everything else on our 1.5 mile walk to the park.

That makes / made no sense at all.

Now I just toss the a6000 in our blanket/beach towel bag and call it good.

That's not an advantage of the camera being different, that is the advantage of not bringing other stuff. This is part of the discussion that confuses me. People talk about how much lighter the mirrorless is, compared to their entire camera bag. You can just carry your DSLR, without the whole bag

I have never understood people who think that they need to carry all their stuff with them wherever they go. I suspect for those people, photography is more about the gear than it is about taking photos.

I don't take all my stuff with me. Oh sure if I go out of town I take my bag that has everything but when I go out to take photos I use a small bag with one lens mounted on the camera and maybe one extra.

of lenses and other high quality stuff, and it will be lighter too. That's what I do. My camera bag usually makes it as far as the car, but when I arrive at where I am going, I leave the bag behind, bringing only the camera, and the lens mounted on it. On rare occasion I put a lens in a belt pouch.
