A good small "companion" body for Olympus OM-D EM-1?
Jan 15, 2014

Dear Folks,

I have an Olympus OM-D EM-1, and absolutely love it.  But there are a few occasions (like going in museums, street shooting, or other more cozy locations) where I might like something smaller as a second body.  Also, I like the idea of having a second, lightweight body to take on long trips as a backup -- just in case one of the cameras has a problem.
I'm toying around with picking up an Olympus PEN PL5, or maybe the PM2.  Both can be found as pretty good deals on Amazon or other sites.

I prefer a camera with an EVF and controls as close to the OM-D as possible, but there's nothing like that in the same price range.

Which other micro-4/3 camera is the best lightweight "sidekick" to the EM-1?  Any recommendations on this?

Thanks in advance!   Cheers, Jon
