Three GM5 bodies each attached to a lens of choice, some spare batteries in a pouch, a suitable charger (all the batteries are the same). One GM5 fill flash in its little bag and a table tripod - all tucked away in a space the size of a shoulder bag. Multiple bodies each only the size of a pack of cards larger than the lens it is attached to. No swapping lenses in the field - swap cameras, they all work in the same way and there is some effective redundancy in having multiple bodies should some misadventure happen.

The GM5 was made for this sort of occasion. You don’t even need a clip-on evf

If, if we had a GM5, but we don't.

So, we will take one body and three lenses.

Use large fast capacity SD cards dedicated to each camera body and you should never need separate storage.

The compact size of the GM5 allows more capable exotic lenses if desired even if they are larger. The 200/2.8 and 40-150/2.8 might pose a slight rethink of the shoulder bag - but much less than if even a couple of G9 bodies were on the menu.


Or one body, two lenses as on our three week Euro. river cruise last fall: G9 and excellent  P-L 14-150 and Oly 9-18 - both adapted 4/3 - and a small shoulder bag.
