Maybe the canon r5 + 100-500 coming in at ~2100g would be the best combo for you.

also consider the a7c + 200-600 but it would be 2600g - saving 7 dollar pr gram though.

as a wild alternative, the a6100 w 200-600 at 2500g

otherwise, yes, think a7riv makes the most sense now.

Adapted Canon EF lenses are hit and miss on Sony bodies, particularly with the longer lenses. For BIF you need exceptional AF.
The a9 will be superior to the a7RIV for BIF. Superior AF trumps resolution every time.
