Back-up Body for OMD EM-5

Am planning for some extensive travel and will need a back-up camera body (besides my Canon S90). Am thinking of an EPL-1, which has become very affordable. I have an array of MFT lenses.

Are the operating systems (OMD vs EPL-1) similar enough that the learning curve won't be too steep?
Any warnings/issues with the EPL-1 that would make it unsuitable?
Any other cameras that might better serve my purpose?

I will be taking "travel photos", but am a serious amateur and want to get the best quality images that I can.

Thanks for your input.
