Which part of the gpro is too big? Length? The G305 is not as long (almost 1 cm less) but it is the same width and height. It's shaped almost exactly like the gpro-wired but the G305 is wireless. Exact same sensor so no performance loss there. If you swap out the battery for a different one then it's very close to the same weight as the gpro.

......and now we wait for someone to see who will be the first to make something under 50g.

No. Don't do this to me. Not the Viper. Not Razer. The old Viper has been literally the benchmark I have been using for years as the most comfortable mouse I have ever used.

Just looking at hardware, it's pretty competitive with the other lightweight gaming mice out there right now.

I believe this was posted in group chat, but I'll add it here for completeness. 

Logitech's newest keyboards are low profile switches and keycaps.  Most likely still using their own romer G switches, although the pictures look very similar to kailh low profiles. 

G815 $200 (Wired): https://www.logitechg.com/en-us/products/gaming-keyboards/g815-low-profile-rgb-mechanical-gaming-keyboard.html

G915 $250 (Wireless): https://www.logitechg.com/en-us/products/gaming-keyboards/g915-low-profile-wireless-mechanical-gaming-keyboard.html

While I'm super satisfied with my logitech wireless mice that use their "lightspeed" wireless technology, I think it's damn steep to charge $250 for a wireless mechanical keyboard.  That being said, even if you wanted to build your own (which can be way more expensive) you're going to be limited to bluetooth which means you can't game on it, or you're stuck with wired.  Also, I find it a little bit disgusting that they're still fiddling with micro-usb instead of jumping to a type-c connector, especially for that cost - it just comes across as cheap. 

Speaking of craziness, I might do something silly like build my own mechanical keyboard at some point in the future, although I'm currently satisfied with the two I own. 
As a small personal project I might try building a macropad first:

If I end up building the macropad, I'll take plenty of pictures and post about the process.  Seems like a decent starter project to get my feet wet.

The G915 looks yummy but i agree $250 is far too steep. If i'm going wireless I'd want to replace my G502 for another G903 as well.

I watched this review of the g915 and he does specifically mention that the keys are "co-developed" with kailh.... so you're paying a shitload of money for chinese switches that logitech are rebadging.  I'm curious if they'll stick with their romer-g stuff for their main lines or if they've decided to go with chinese manufacturing instead of japanese (Omron) moving forward.

Nice keyboard but those switches look really really similar to the kailh switches I have...... but I paid like less than 1/3 the price....

New mouse from a big name but it just continues the disappointing track record for Steelseries.

Steelseries Sensei Ten
https://steelseries.com/gaming-mice/sensei-ten

Very safe shape and good sensor (probably) but it's a joke to have a wired mouse and call it "lightweight" nowadays when it weighs 92g. Remember that Logitech Gaming Pro wirelss is 80g which makes one of their FAQs especially funny:

Why is it not wireless?
We believe that the Sensei Ten would not feel like a true Sensei with the additional weight of wireless. We focused on giving it the best sensor possible and increasing its durability, all while lowering the weight to a 92g form factor.

Logitech released their newest keyboard with swappable switches.  I'm a little bit concerned because they mention "GX Blue Clicky" and I'm trying to figure out if this is proprietary bullshit (strong possibility) or if it's them desperately trying to avoid saying they're kailh switches and they're charging $50 for 92 chinese switches (you can buy them for roughly $0.25/switch).

Razer released a new mechanical keyboard recently.  It's still got proprietary optical switches and a weird wire stabilizer per switch that I haven't seen before, but several people on the /r/mk sub think it's halfway decent.
