Ever just take a 4/3rds system and leave the big DSLR guns at home?

I do have the 24-105 and it's tempting to take especially with the IS, but I thought it duplicated too much what focal length I have with the G3. The 16-35 I have is the mark 2 so sharper than the mark 1, but sharpness isn't it's strongest point..

I may still take the 24-105. If I did leave the 70-300L and 16-35 behind and take the 45-200 for the G3 I'd certainly save a bit on weight.

For the wide end, have you considered a Panasonic 7-14mm? It's a wonderful and quite versatile lens... one of the best M4/3 lenses, actually... and weighs only 300g. It's one of my most used lenses, which I carry with a 20mm, 14-140mm and a Nikon 60mm f2.8 macro lens with my GH2 as a travel kit. That covers everything but extreme telephoto.
