A G5/G6 with the 12-35mm f/2.8 is about the same weight as a Canon 24-105 f/4 by itself... Not the most appropriate comparison (just one that comes to mind based on Canon gear my sister has), but the point is that even though the DSLR styled M43 bodies may not be significantly smaller than something like a Canon SL1, the lenses are still far smaller. A G5 with a 14-140 is also about the same size as a Rebel with a kit 3x zoom. There's smaller bodies obviously, but as already mentioned, the G line's probably the cheapest way to an EVF... Baring a GX1 / EVF fire sale. You can find the G6 for just under $600 if you want one of the best EVF out there and aren't trying to budget for extra lenses, comes with a smaller kit zoom too.
