R5 + Ef-s Tele

Hi all,

I'm considering to buy the R5 and one reason (over the R6) would be that it gives the possibility to use my Ef-s 55-250 IS STM with a decent ~18MP for Landscape Shots while hiking.

The main benefit compared to FF optics that I see is the weight of only 375gr while still being very sharp.

The Watzmann Hut in the Bavarian Alps. Taken on my 80D on 400mm equiv. Pano of 2 pictures and cropped, resulting in ~25MP of resolution.

Currently I'm using the tele in parallel to my 6D on either a M50 or 80D (usually I prefer the 80D due to the better ergonomics, also with gloves) but I see the chance to get rid of the secondary aps-c body.

What do you think? Does it make sense to invest that much money in the body but then going with a "cheapo" lens (That I actually love quite a bit!)?
