According to advices from this thread m43 is the optimal choice but I should stick to native lenses and not use simple adapters.

Olympus M10 Mark II was mentioned a lot in other threads too.

Panasonic was also recommended but as far as I know it's better at doing video. But I won't shoot any video so Olympus should suite my needs (stills) better. Right?

IMHO/AFAIK there's no significant difference in stills IQ between Oly and Pana except some people prefer the colors in Oly's JPG output. So that could be a reason to choose Oly but a rather subjective one. Personally I haven't seen a consistent difference in favour of either when looking at test photos. And color output is almost endlessly adjustable both in camera and post processing.

Well I guess I need to research Panasonics 5-8 year old models now as I did for other brands. Don't want to miss a good option.
