Camera system at 1kg


I have the hobby of bike tour where I ride a bike for 1-2 months at a time with all camping stuff carried on my bike. This is used as a great way to get to place to take photo and to see the world.

I have a GM5 body which I take on all trips using it in the rain, changing lenses in wind by turning my back to the wind and putting on the new lens. I really like the camera both it size, photo capability and the view finder. However after my level of rough use I am wondering if there is a better m4/3 body or if I should be looking into getting a second GM5 for when this one fails?

Second question is there a better lens for style of travel with taking mainly landscape photos with some people photos and museums.

Please note in an effort to keep the weight down my camera system does go on a scale and I limit the max weight to 1kg including batteries, changer, SD cards, body and lenses.

Thank you for your time
