Backup for Lumix GH5

I'd like to shoot some interviews (this is a very-amateur project) using my Lumix GH5. I'd also like to be running a second camera to capture closeups or different angles. I'm looking for recommendations for a lower-priced camera for set backup shots.

The natural choice would be a GH4 (as all lenses would be compatible), but that's $1400 for a body and lens and I'm hoping to spend a lot less. I was even considering a Gopro. All thoughts appreciated.

Panasonic G7

I was considering the Panasonic G7 as a viable camera for this. Price is right, shoots 4k and lenses appear to be compatible.

I'm going to chime in and say a Lumix FZ1000 would do the job, and probably look REALLY close, especially if it's B-roll stuff. There are Youtube's that show a FZ1000 next to a GH4, and it's pretty much the same thing visually. Get a used one, and you're only out 3-5 hundo.
