Re: Olympus OM-D E-M5 or Nikon D5100 ? Need your advise

If your previous camera was a compact then both will be a considerable improvement.

Comparing the OM-D to my Z2 the low light performance and speed are incredible to me.

I'm sure a proper DLSR is even better in those aspects, but I do wonder if I'd be able to appreciate it.

One factor to consider is how easy it will be to buy additional parts and how easy it will be to get it repaired.

As such the OM-D might not be the best choice for you considering that you might have to send it back to the USA just to get it fixed if anything were to happen.
