I would say that the decision would be based on your covering skills vs painting skills... I love to cover my planes! I find it relaxing and rewarding. And with so many choices of covering you could actually bring the weight DOWN if you select a lightweight covering. If you like to paint but are concerned about weight you could cover with lightweight covering and then airbrush very lightly a few coats, you would still get a weight savings if you are careful.
Another benefit of doing ONLY covering is the fact that due to temp changes the covering can wrinkle. Just apply an iron and you can fix that no problem... I would not do that with paint on the covering unless I was EXTREEMLY careful with temp and the force I applied with the iron...
