A number of ways to save weight with a FX camera based kit. The Nikon 18-35mm f/3.5G lens with the 28-300mm f/5.6 lens makes for a very good kit and not a great deal of weight or bulk.

Beyond that the trick is to go to a 4/3 camera and lenses where f/2.8 constant aperture lenses weigh half of what their full frame counterparts weigh and are less than half the size.

I also have both 4/3 and FX gear. Also a constant f/2.8 Panasonic FZ200. "f/2.8" is meaningless when comparing across formats.
