I don't personally understand the weight argument. It's hardly taxing carrying a SLR on with some lens.

In addition to my DSLRs I have an EOS M (the original!) with the 22mm and 18-55mm. Naturally I turn to the DSLRs and L glass for serious photography. But it's nice to grab the M for those times I want to shoot casually. The M is a feather by comparison and it does make a difference.

But...that's an APS-C M with a pancake lens or a tiny EF-M short zoom. There is no real weight savings with a Sony FF and either adapted Canon glass or equivalent Sony glass.

I added the SL2 and it's great for travel, and if I want a bit more quality I attach the 16-35F4L, that lens is amazing even on crop.
