Building an apsc Sony system?

Hello guys,

Just bought an a6300 with 16-50pz and 50 1.8 oss wanting to go to sony for perhaps a lighter system. I came to sony as I ruled out m43 because end results are kind of lackluster compared to what you have to pay for mid and top range equipment.

And I ruled out Fuji because I strongly dislike the new xtrans 3 sensor (xtrans 1 and 2 I loved) because it's neither unique and, to me, it's worse  than the one in Sony cameras.

After much changing cameras and systems I currently shoot a Nikon d7000 with 35 1.8g, 50 1.4g, 85 1.8d, Tamron 18-200, sigma 17-50 2.8 and Tokina 50-135 2.8. it's great but it gets heavy (I go out with 3 lenses at most at a time) and needs bigger bags than I'd like to carry. So it's been ending up staying at home.

So I want to see if I can get a smaller and lighter system with the a6300. I shoot mostly street and family events.

I've been looking at what's available for Sony but I'm getting confused as to what to get. At bare minimum I'd need a walk around universal standard or super zoom and a portrait lens longer than the 50mm. I'd like 2.8 zooms but can't find any? And how to distinguish which lenses are weather sealed?

I'd be thankful for any advice, thoughts, musings and experiences.
