In my case now I guess the Olympus XZ-2 but I would miss the 24mm equivalent.

The LX3 was the last one with unchipped batteries and I do like to buy third party spares to keep costs down. Otherwise maybe the LX7 or whatever is next in that line.

Usually the discreet, quiet shots are where I am up close and personal so tele not needed at all for that second camera.

One day in the dim distant future, we will have a global shutter then all the mechanical clank and clatter of the Oly M4/3 will go away, at last. The slow scan e.shutter does not appeal to me.

Regards.... Guy
