For real backpacking (multiple nights in the wilderness on foot) I use a Pentax Q. Tiny as can be and cheap ($250 with the kit lens). It's a delightful little camera. Magnesium build and full manual controls. Plus it has an 83-249mm equiv f/2.8 zoom lens you can get for $240. You don't even feel the weight while you're hiking. Yep, the sensor is tiny, but you're shooting in daylight most of the time on a hiking trip, so it copes just fine.

For everything else I use my E-M5.

Thats a new idea, perhaps more like a bridge zoom camera, why not?
Cheers, Erik
