Shimano pedals are "heavy" but only because the Speedplay cleats are also "heavy", and they aren't usually counted. If you count pedal+cleat, the Shimano 105 (PD-5700) is probably about 30g heavier than a Speedplay Zero Cr/Mo. Unless you're going to get the Ti or Nanogram pedals, you won't realize much savings, you're shifting weight from the bike to your foot. It technically makes the bike lighter if you're into winning "lightest bike" contests.
