    Question Backup camera

    Hi members,I am amature photographer for events,I use a standard 14-54 lens with external flash on my camera to shoot,I need your views for I want to get a backup camera any brand which can shoot in low light with minimum noise and to consider a lens may be a zoom lens 200 mm.Why I need a backup? its for candid shots where by I need not change lens and its very stressful to change lens during event shooting.What I am looking for a camera which is compact and must be a dslr.Thanks,all suggestions are most welcome!

    I think it's a 14-45mm lens, yes? If so, I guess you're using an Olympus system? Stick to Olympus DSLR then. Maybe a 2nd hand E-1/E-300?

    Yes,its 14-54mm zuiko lens,but the olys produce noise at 800 iso,and to buy a 200mm lens zuiko its too expensive for a backup and its hard to come for a 2nd, the E 1 is good but its bulky to carry around for a backup!I am looking for a small dlsr,with choice for 2nd zoom lens.
