Lens-body combos out and about
1

Curious if others have one smaller body and one larger body and tend to use different sized lenses accordingly.

Background: I've had a GX7 forever and added a G85 recently. After the addition, I found that my two most used lenses have been the kit 12-60 and the 20 1.7ii. But I've found that if I'm grabbing my camera to go somewhere, I usually just choose between the G85 with 12-60 or the GX7 with the 20, as opposed to throwing the 20 onto the G85, for example.  The lens sizes just seem to match the bodies better -- like the 20 helps the GX7 kit remain tiny but doesn't help the G85 become pocketable, for example. And my "bigger" lenses feel better balanced on the G85, which has the nicer viewfinder, etc.

There's no right answer here; I was just wondering if other folks function that way or if you tend to use one cam and swap out lenses regardless of size considerations.
