    Considering how versatile this little box is, there is no excuse not to carry it most of the time. :D

    I switched from Canon dSLR to Olympus mirrorless a few years back as the weight was just becoming painful. I have not regretted it one little bit.
    I'm just an amateur so had nobody else to please with my choice of kit so that aspect was easy, I narrowed down my list and then rented a couple of options before I decided.

    I figure the Canon 5D IV and EOS R are about the same.
    The Canon 5D is 890g
    EOS R is 600g

    300g is a nice chunk of weight.
    It will take years; but if you like fast lenses in theory the shorter flange distance will reduce the number of groups, glasses and other complexities in the lenses.
    That is where the real weight savings will be.

    While telephoto lenses tend to get heavier.
