Love what I have. It's just too heavy.

I'm researching Sony lenses but it seems many don't even use sony glass so I'm looking at some possible lineups for a A7RII/6300.
my main goal would be small/light so it would probably be primes only.
I'm thinking the Voightlander 15 ( I believe one is coming soon for Sony E ) and the Zeiss Batis 25. I assume these would both work on the A7RII and 6300?
I would also want something in the 35 to 85 range.
I'm interested to know what most Sony shooters are using and what you would suggest for the smallest possible size/weight.
If I am going light weight, I will use 35f2.8 FE, 55f1.8FE on A7r, and 35f1.8E and 50f1.5E on A6000. Since mostly I use wide angle, so Touit 12f2.8 will also be in my bag

when I travel I bring the 16 to 35 and 1 fast prime. currently that's the cv 40 but thinking of getting the 55 1.8 if i like the rendering ... I am asking for some side by sides in the lens section hoping that would push me over the edge or totally forget about the lens....
[Sony A7s | Sony Zeiss 16-35m f/4.0 | Sony FE 28m f2 | Sony Zeiss 55m f1.8 | Sony FE 28-70m f/3.5-5.6 | Helios 44-2 | Helios 44-3 | Nikon 105m f/2.5 AIS | Contax Zeiss Planar 50m f1.7 | Contax Zeiss Planar 100m f2 | Voigtlander Nokton 40m f/1.4 | Canon 24-105m f/4.0L | Canon 85m f/1.8 | Sigma 30m f/1.4 | Canon 10-22m f/3.5-4.5 | Canon 100m f/2.8 Macro USM | Canon 580 EX Ver 1.0]
I only have three lenses for my three Sony bodies. I bought a fourth, a LoMo 120mm f1.8, but I still need to convert it. It came to me with considerable internal dust from Russia, so I'm still not sure if I'm going to go through with the conversation.
Sony A99ii, RX-100ii, Sonnar T* 135mm f/1.8 ZA, Minolta HS 200 2.8 APO, Zeiss 24/2 ZA, Minolta 2xTC APO, HVL-F43M
I just got my a6500 and I shoot with the 30mm 1.4 and the 18-105 f/4 (which Im about to sell and get the 18-35 1.8 Sigma). I like these lenses, I rarely use my Sony for Portraiture though
