Is there a reason not to buy OM-D E-M5 II?

Hey there...

Contemplating buying the E-M5 II with the 14-150mm II. Right now, it's retailing for $1k for the combo. Two things lead me to considering this:

  1. I would like a smaller high quality rig for travel (I have a 5D3 and rx100 I currently)
  2. I sometimes do underwater photography and Meikon has a very cheap housing available for E-M5 II and the right port for the included lens

I am not enthused, however, about the age of the camera (but I am pretty happy about consequent price discount) and its features.

I am not leaving Canon as I have pretty much all I need there for serious photography, so this will not be my primary camera for things like serious landscape, travel, and wildlife photography.

Would appreciate any input, particularly from those of you who might have used this combo for either travel or underwater photography.

Thanks!
