Downsizing from X-H1 and lenses

I currently have the X-H1, where my only lens is the 23mm 1.4. I really like it, and it takes great pictures. However, this combo is large, almost 1kg combined, and I find that I never take it with me when I am going out.

I want something smaller and lighter which is what mirrorless is all about. I would buy the X100V, but I want to have interchangeable lenses.

Depending on Fuji's upcoming announcements, I guess I will take a good look at that new X-E4.

As for lenses, I want to build a three lens kit for travelling and general use. I want to store my whole kit in my Peak Design 3l Sling. My current requirements is:

  • One 1.4 lens for low light situations
  • At least one WR lens (If the X-E4 turns out to be WR)
  • One Macro capable lens
  • One lens has to be a standard range lens

For the low light lens there is three alternatives:

  • 16mm 1.4 WR - 375g
  • 23mm 1.4 - 300g
  • 35mm 1.4 - 187g

For the WR lens there is four:

  • 16mm 1.4 WR - 375g
  • 16mm 2.8 WR - 155g
  • 23mm 2.0 WR - 180g
  • 35mm 2.0 WR - 170g

For the macro lens there is these, that I have found (The 80 being too large and expensive, so has been excluded):

  • 60mm 2.4 Macro, 0.5:1 - 215g
  • Laowa 65mm 2.8 2:1 - 335g (Manual lens)
  • Probably more that I don't know..

I have some doubts about only having 0.5 magnification with the 60mm, but also doubts about having a manual lens which would be less user friendly for normal shooting.

For standard range there is:

  • 23mm 1.4 - 300g
  • 35mm 1.4 - 187g
  • 23mm 2.0 WR - 180g
  • 35mm 2.0 WR - 170g
  • 27mm 2.8 MK2? - 78g
  • 18mm 2.0 - 116g

If you were to build a kit with three, what would you take, and why?
