I guess my best alternative is keeping either 750D or Sony A6000 plus kit lens, they are more than enough for the job (except Sony 16-50 is rather mediocre at 16mm though)
What is your weight limit?
As to modern lenses, there is the EF 24-105 F3.5-5.6 IS STM, which weighs 525 grams and is a very decent lens, there is the EF-S 15-85 F3.5-5.6 IS STM at 575 grams, and the EF-S 18-135 F3.5-5.6 IS STM at 480 grams.
Another potential one at 465 grams could be the Sigma 17-70 F/2.8-4.0 DC Macro OS HSM Macro Contemporary, or maybe even the Tamron 17-50 mm F/.2.8 SP Di II at 430 grams.
Anything else zoomlens wise is all over 500 grams; that seems to be some kind of optimum.
For Sony I can’t find anything really that will fit the request other than an 18-55.
An alternative could be one, or two, of the smaller Canon primes. The EF 40 F/2.8 and the EF-S 24 F/2.8 come to mind, f.e. You’re limited with those, as they are not zooms obviously, but they certainly are light and small.
HTH, kind regards, Wim
Gear: Canon EOS R with 3 primes and 2 zooms, 4 EF-R adapters, Canon EOS 5 (analog), 9 Canon EF primes, a lone Canon EF zoom, 2 extenders, 2 converters, tubes; Olympus OM-D 1 Mk II & Pen F with 12 primes, 6 zooms, and 3 Metabones EF-MFT adapters ....
