Having two cameras is always better than having only one. For the same price and almost the same weight of R5 + 2 zooms you can have A7Siii+A7Riv and 2 zooms (and one is only 20mm shorter, but A7Riv has more mp to crop).

For me - there's no competition right now. Sony is an obvious choice.

I think it becomes very tricky, once you try to compare equivalent lenses.  certainly the tamron 70-180 is not equivalent to canon rf 70-200.   You want to be fair about it, why dont you compare the sony 70-200 2.8 G and the the sony 24-70 2.8G?

You can also use the old canon EF mounts with adaptors like that excellent ef 24-70 2.8 or any of the 3rd party lenses.
