None of them is likely to be as good as the lenses you've got now. A jack-of-all-trades-and-master-of-none lens may be smaller, lighter, and more convenient that multiple lenses of less ambitious zoom ranges, but the image quality won't be as good.

If you want something smaller, lighter, and more convenient, and you're willing to accept lower image quality, you might be better off with a bridge camera, and it may even be cheaper too.
