Buy a second body? Not sure if you have looked at some of the new mirrorless systems or not. They are much more compact than any SLR.

Yes I have but somehow I haven't been convinced so far. They lack true wide angles, portrait lenses. For the moment their versatility seems a bit illusional.

What about the Olympus 9-18 or Panasonic 7-14? The Olympus is equivalent to the Pentax 12-24, and the 7-14 is actually wider than the Sigma 10-20 on APS-C.

I agree, though, that portrait lenses are a bit lacking. They really need a very fast 30-ish prime, it has to be really fast to counter the DOF disadvantage of the micro 4/3 format.
