He is comparing systems with the same capabilities, as simple as that. You are not.

I did detailed comparisons between my Nikon DX gear and m43 gear for my uses and found weight savings that really mattered. My comparisons:

Nikon D7000 + Sigma 150mm macro - 3.72 lb. for my macro/closeup setup. With a tripod and a grip head it is 9.46 lb.

Panasonic G6 + Olympus 60mm macro - 1.34 lb. With a light head and tripod, just under 4 lbs. With an even lighter tripod and head, the total is 3 lbs.

For a wildlife setup, the difference was even bigger.

Nikon D7000 + Nikon F4 300mm lens + 1.4x Teleconverter for wildlife pictures - 5.3 lbs.

G6 + 100-300mm lens - just under 2 lbs.
