Gx85 for Travel?

I sold my EP5 and the two kit lenses yesterday. My "normal" cameras are 2 Gx8's. I plan on doing some traveling with the wife this year and need a small camera that does video and good stills. Normally I travel with the Gx8/12-35 and Oly 75-300 II, but on family trips I have used the EP5 and two kit lenses to keep things simple.

I have lots of lenses but will travel with the Oly 9-18mm, perhaps the Pany 14, and the 35-100mm f4 if I get the Gx85. Have to keep both the lenses and camera small. Budget is right at the Gx85 price of $600.

The Gx85 just seems like a the obvious  choice, am I wrong?
