Ricoh GR, gm1/5, coolpix A, G1x?
Currently have m43 system.
Quite different cameras. Fixed 28mm vs a 24-112 zoom or ILC. Some with EVF some without.
Different sizes too: http://camerasize.com/compact/#534,445,ha,t
Do you need a small one to keep in the pocket just in case? Or a backup in case of failure of the main camera?
You could consider the Olympus Stylus 1. I find it an excellent alternative to taking a full kit & it has a constant f2.8 10.4 X zoom lens equivalent to using a 14-150 M4/3's lens & can fire off sequential shots at up to 7fps, I really like it.
There are many threads here on the subject of buying a second body. Search is your friend.
The consensus is usually that if you need a second body for serious shooting, like money shooting, it should be identical to the first body. If you just want another toy OTOH, then anything goes.
What camera and lenses do you currently have? The GM1/5 are great travel companions to another m4/3 systems. For an all in one my personal first choices are the LX100 or an RX100 m#. Fast lens, big sensor, great manual controls versus nice sensor, reasonable controls, in your pocket.
I think some camera sizes, e.g. - E-M10, E-M5, GX7, etc., can be used both every day cameras and as travel cameras. For me, the lens choice is a more important decision when traveling rather than the body.
I just bought my wife a Canon Powershot 110 and absolutely love the images and video of this little guy. I'm looking for one now to back up my regular kit.
Not enough info to give you anything more than an opinion on what someone else might pick.
Please provide what you like to shoot, your fav focal lengths, prime/zoom shooter? The more info we have the better chance we can provide a legitimate response to your questions.
My wife has an LX5. That's my backup. 24mm equiv is a must for me which is why I bought her the LX5
I have the Coolpix A and I think it is great. AF is a weak point. The small size is fantastic. But make sure you like 28mm, obviously
GM1, 12-32mm and some super glue, no?
Seems sensible https://www.mu-43.com/threads/76201/
I like to keep things simple. I'd go with a small camera with a small (maybe fixed) lens. Maybe fixed FL, too.
