With 2kg of lens stuck to the front of it. I really don't understand the light camera fad when you then stick fast full frame lens on the front of it?
It's why the Q system makes much more sense to me.

The only way to get 2kg with mirrorless is by having some massive lens; I wasn't talking about that.

For people who use a camera "casually" but want a really high performance (e.g. a K3 with a 16-85) a mirrorless camera can actually halve the weight of the whole thing.

I've heard wide-angle lenses can be smaller on mirrorless cameras because they don't need retrofocus elements. But yeah, fullframe mirrorless wouldn't be my choice as well. M4/3 however makes sense to me.
