How many lenses?

In a now locked thread, this exchange ocurred:

I consider aps-c lenses limited because I would need a big backpack to carry around my 6 usual lenses if they were full frame so I would be forced to leave some at home and have my choices limited. Now that is what call limited.

You may be self limiting your activities because of carrying so much gear. Clearly you aren't backpacking as this would limit your capacity for other gear. It's likely you don't have to carry all your gear on your person when walking around for your photography. Put your lenses in a case an configure your camera for the purpose before you go out. Maybe bring another lens or two in a smaller bag, but all 6? This sounds like a very specific use as most people wouldn't take as many lenses as that.

And I was reminded of this image:

And here's an equally renowned photographer, fully equipped:

What say ye? I personally usually carry 3 tiny primes, but by myself in a target-rich environment I'll carry 3 big zooms, a macro and a TC, and proceed veerry slooowly
