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.

Why should I compare Canon lens and GM? It’s only Canon fault that RF mount is closed for other manufacturers. 180mm and 200mm is really small difference. 70-200mm GM is better then RF, cause RF doesn’t have internal zoom. So 70-180mm tamron and 70-200 RF has a lot in common.

Old EF lens with adapted will add some extra weight again. Plus there’s no point of having mirrorless camera with DSLR lens.

All very true canon close mount misses so much ,so when the sigma art 70-200mm f2.8 comes everyone will want this lens, weight will be in between tamron and gm most likley come with is ,and optically superior to both of them not as though it has to be , but i bet it will be ,hoping for the new 85mm f1.4 fe performance and weight compared to competition.
