better to use just one camera, and really get to know it, even though it is less than ideal in all situations, your omd is an amazingly good camera, get a pancake for it and a load of spare batteries. you should get 5 years use out of it.

the true test of a camera's greatness is that one shouldnt want to get a new one unless it actually breaks.

I agree with everything you said. Please see my previous comments to understand why I want the best possible secondary camera for:

(1) indoor low light shooting. I don't want to take even my admittedly small my gear bag (a converted Pacsafe 250 messenger bag) into pubs or music venues in Ireland, and:

(2) Should something happened to my OMD (this has happened to me already with my OMD) I want a second camera whose images will be near enough to the OMD that I won't be ashamed of them. Others have stated: "Just buy a second camera if you need to". Well I'm going to be in rural Ireland, and I doubt that will be easy to do.

I have been using my OMD a lot...as much as my life permits. (Life. Not Wife).
