Personally I don't subscribe to the "one sensor (camera) many lenses" model anymore, however. I think it is pretty obsolete. For long zoom reach I use a superzoom because the shooting I do with that is all in bright light where sensor size doesn't matter much. The whole camera costs less than a decent long lens for APS-C and gives good results with more fun.

Long tele's in an apsc format are too big and bulky for travel.  If money were no object, I'd look into a Nikon V3 and paste on a 70-300 (200-900 equivalent).  And keep an a6000 for shorter lengths.

A superzoom is a more practical, less expensive solution.

Like you, i don't subscribe to "one camera many lenses" model.  For example, many times  i go out with an x100s and keep an rx100mkii in my pocket.
