it weighs 700g even slightly heavier than my 24-105f4 at 670 grams

If you want something compact, I'd suggest the EF 40 F/2.8 with adapter. Slightly smaller, and lighter, than the RF 25 F/1.8 Macro, but works extremely well.
I have been looking at lenses for my R, but so far it looks like we have to be a little patient for now. The only alternative really is adapted lenses, especially in the range you are looking for. You could consider the EF 40 F/2.8 and/or EF 28 F/2.8 IS, or maybe even the 24 F/2.8 IS.
As to zoom lenses, you could go for the EF 28-135 STM, again, adapted. It is reasonably good.
HTH, kind regards, Wim
primes side I have 28f2.8 and 50mmf1.8 (preferring over my 50f1.4 for weight) that are fine, I need a zoom
