Changing camera systems
I have a Canon 7D Mark II and assorted lenses. I'm getting older and the camera is beginning to feel too heavy for me and I'd like to switch to a lighter camera that will be used primarily for travel and hobby photography. Mirrorless seems to be the wave of the future and I believe are lighter than traditional DSLRs. I do have big hands so the new camera can't be too small. Plus I'm concerned about the learning curve if I switch to Fujifilm or Sony, but I do love the retro look of some of the Fujifilm cameras. Looking for suggestions. Price range would need to be $2500 or less including a lens or two. Hopefully the camera would have a decent travel lens available. Thank you all in advance.
Lenses are still a major concern of weight. It's hard to beat the physics of light-gathering large-aperture lenses and their weight.
Since you have Canon equipment, I have to mention that I use a pair of Canon EOS M50 Mirrorless bodies and a mix of lenses, including adapted EF and EF-S lenses mounted via 2-adapters:

Thanks so much. This is very helpful. It's great that my current lenses could still be used! I'll check out the M50 soon.
@macmassey, curious what you decided to do? Hope you found something that works for you!
I was a Canon shooter for a long time, then Canon and Fuji, and now mostly Fuji. But I am still interested in hearing about other mirrorless systems, like what @ziggy53 is using. I upgraded to the Fuji X-T4 a year ago and then hurt my shoulder so that delayed putting it to good use. I find the Fuji menu less intuitive than Canon but find a lot to love about the Fuji system.
