Rather pointless point..

FE 24-70 f2,8  weights  886g - and there is a long list of various lenses for APS C and FF. Just check, compare  and meditate. More or less.

Usually APS C sensor camera  means that you have to carry less weight and invest really smaller sums of money in lenses. A pro who earns enough money invests of course in lenses he/she needs. And has a big bag... and hopefully enough money.

Some professionals are good - and they make their living with APS C cameras quite easily. It is the skills that make a pro.

Weight /less weight) of the camera body has real significance ONLY if you use really lightweight lenses.  With "pro" lenses and wildlife gear it is important to have some real balance . I would not use my tiny X-E3  (337g with battery)  with a lens like 100-400. X-H1 would be much better - to use for taking pictures with a heavy big lens and then the 200-300g more weight  has no negative  significance.

We can buy  or not to buy whatever we like and be disappointed if we want to.

Personally I do not care if X-T4 weights more or less. Very likely I will be using my H1, E3. and 5DMkIV also in 2022... and 23
