All those things Steve listed really are improvements.

But are they enough of an improvement to justify spending $1400 to replace a camera you recently paid $1000 for?

It just depends on you and your circumstance. If you want to use 4/3 PDAF lenses then that could be the best possible reason to spend the money.

The better LCD screen, much better EVF, higher shutter speed, focus peaking, etc, are ALL nice to have, but non really necessary for many of us.

The real problem for Olympus in upgrading the EM5 is... the EM5 is still very near the top of it's class. Eventually, we will get something better, but it will have to be a lot better to get me to part with $1400. There are lenses I would rather buy instead!
