That's it! I'm done waiting on Canon to come out with a Mirrorless FF replacement for my 1DXII so I'm making to move to SONY.

I'm tired of traveling with all the weight of the 1DXII and the idea of buying a 2 year old 5DIV, that is not really much smaller, just doesn't sit well with me.

I'm going to try the Metabones adapter with my Canon Lenses and see how that works out. Maybe in a few years Canon will catch up to Sony, but I just can't wait any longer. : (

I travel overseas few times a year. Depending on where I am going or what kind of pictures I am likely to take I usually take 2-4 lenses from these; Canon 16- 35/2.8 III, Canon 24-70/2.8 II, Canon 70-200/2.8 IS II, Canon 35/1.4 II and Canon 100-400 II. My camera currently is 5D IV (used to be III, II etc). I do think about travelling light. But if I want FF and stick with a combination from these lenses ( or similar lenses from Sony) I don't see any significant weight advantage. Of course 1DX II is much heavier and depending on the lenses you are likely to use you may save some weight. In my case even if there was significant weight reduction by switching to Sony I wouldn't have. I simply like the output from my Canons (especially color) and its controls, ergonomic, menu system, reliability , battery life, OVF, performance, familiarity etc.

I think currently the best setup for travelling light with decent IQ comes from mFT.
