Additional travel camera

Out of curiosty, having a GFX 50r, what aditional camera would you bring with you for a one month long vacation?

I will bring my 50r w/ 32-64 and the 45mm, but would like to add a smaller camera and maybe some more reach, weathersealing is a nice bonus too.

Alternatives I have been looking at:

Sony RX100VA: Pros: small - Cons: maybe not enough reach and not good in low light
Sony RX100VI: Pros: small long reach - Cons: Not good in low light
Fuji X100F: Pros: good in low light, small enough - Cons: Short reach
Ricoh GRIII: Pros: good in low light, small enough - Cons: Short reach (never used this camera)
Olympus OMD-E-II w/ 12-200: Pros: OK in low light, very good IS, weathersealed - Cons: Expensive, large and the GFX covers much of the use
Sony A9/A7rIII: Good in low light, good reach (with the right lens) Cons: Expensive, heavy, will cover all that the GFX do. Would leave my GFX at home with this set-up
Sony RX1rII: Pros: Good in lowlight, superb lens, small Cons: expensive, not enough reach, same range as the GF45mm
Leica Q: Good in low light Cons: Expensive

Other options?

I hope to use the 50r most of the time, but some times I probably would like a smaller camera. And I will not bring the 50r to the beach
