I am probably in the minority and a glutton for punishment toting my full-frame Canon 6D DSLR and tripod on multi-day backpacking trips, but I like doing low-light and nighttime photography and even the best phones don't handle those situations well.  On shorter distances and short overnight trips I may bring extra lenses, but on longer trips my 24-105 mm lens is the only one carry and is pretty versatile for landscapes and the shots I'm typically capturing...but not quite enough reach for distant wildlife or squatches 😉
