1 kg versus 3 kg - Canon, I am tempted

I have a wide range of lenses to go with my Canon dSLR. I am very pleased with it. My travel kit normally would consist of the EOS 5D body with 3 zoom lenses: Sigma 12-24, Canon 24-105 and 70-200.

However, I have not taken it on my last few business related trips as it is to big and heavy to fit into a carry on luggage. So, I have brought only my pocket camera, but om my last trip to L'viv in Ukraine I really regretted not having brought a more capable setup. So, I now find myself looking at micro 4/3 cameras - to supplement the Canon gear.

My Canon travel kit weighs in at about 3 kg while a "simmilar" 4/3 setup from Panasonic would weigh in at only about 1 kg.

░895 g . . Canon EOS 5D
░600 g . . Sigma 12-24mm f4.5/5.6 EX DG HSM
░670 g . . Canon EF 24-105 f/4.0 L IS USM
░760 g . . Canon EF-L 70-200 mm f/4.0 IS USM
2925 g . . Sum

░490 g . . Panasonic Lumix DMC-G3
░300 g . . Panasonic 7-14mm f/4 ASPH LUMIX G VARIO
░░95 g . . Panasonic 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 ASPH POWER OIS LUMIX
░210 g . . Panasonic 45-175mm f/4-5.6 ASPH POWER OIS LUMIX
1095 g . . Sum

So, why are you not offering something in this niche Canon??
