As I do a lot of mountain climbs here in Alaska (they are in the
neighborhood, it's just kinda what we do around here), I do find
myself using the Lumix GX-80/85 with the two kit lenses quite a bit.
The EM5-Mk2 also gets used quite a bit too, and that thing has
survived a major tumble. I do like the EM1-Mk2 but it and the Sony are
so much heavier, I usually avoid them when the vertical gain is going
to be >2500 feet.
