If this is the purpose, all the gear you mentioned is complete overkill. A Fuji X-T3 and a couple of lenses will do and will be much much lighter.

Fuji Xt3 = 540gms

10-24 f4 = 410gms

16-55 f2.8 = 655gms

or 18-55 f2.8-4 = 310gms not really an equivalent as it needs to be f2.8 for DX/FF difference but I'm sure you'll bemoan that it is good enough.

Total = 1605gms or 1260gms

Z6/7 = 585gms

24-70 f4S = 500gms

14-30 f4S = 485gms

Total = 1570gms.

Much lighter? I think not. However, the benefit of FF for low light noise cannot be overlooked.

The other issue for the OP is that he cannot utilise his other lenses on a Fuji system, whereas he can use his current lenses on his Z mount camera if required.
