The stuff I have weighs too much and is too bulky.

Easily fixed. Leave some of it on the shelf. Think about where you are going, and what you are shooting, and what your goals are, and only bring the gear you need. Changing systems just means taking time to build up a collection of gear that will eventually be heavy and bulky. If the gear is smaller and lighter, you will just accumulate more of over time before hitting the wall. Make good decsions about what to bring with you, and the problem is solved.

I believe you are first and foremost a collector. The gear you have will become more valuable to you as time goes on. You may regret the sales you already made.

(I live with a collector of art. She is prepared to suffer for the privilege of collecting, and keeping!)

For your shoots, you don't have to take the whole collection with you. Just put in your bag what you need for the project.
