Yes, it would be interesting.

The only major sticking point would be in certain situations one might find something is NECESSARY while in other situations, not.

For instance: I just bought an Olympus E-M1 MK II (used) despite having two Panasonic full frame bodies (both an S1 and an S5) as well as three Sony aps-c cameras.

So why an E-Mi MK II since it is a camera that is a bit older and isn't necessarily cheap?

Because it is for my son, who WOULD want a flip-out screen for vlogging / selfies (ruling out my Sony aps-c cameras), and would want great stabilization (again, ruling out my sony aps-c cameras).

It has COMPETENT AF-C, so it beats out Panasonic m43 bodies (although the AF-C is not as good as that on Sony aps-c bodies).

And it gets great colors in video.

So, effectively that E-M1 MK II is gonna "replace" my three Sony cameras, but wouldn't be a replacement for my full frame S-series bodies.
