I own an E-M1 and an X-T1. I'll probably sell the E-M1, but it's not a clear choice.

Sell the E-M1

I blogged about it here: http://www.bershatsky.com/blog/2014/2/x-t1

Bottom line?

E-M1: Faster focusing and more responsive

X-T1: Nicer optics and images

I like the looks of the X-T1 images so much, that I'll deal with the slower speed and handling.

Another thing that occurs to me, is that all of the pictures were shot in very low light at an average of ISO 6400. Perhaps that is why my focusing experience was less than optimal.

If you want to sell the E-M1 let me know what you want for it.

Have you tried using the different imaging settings on the E-M1? I have found if you want very smooth skin and still not to look too 'plasticy' set your picture settings from natural to portrait. It really does make a big difference. I keep mine on natural most of the time, but this is a good feature. I don't shoot in RAW most of the time, but one of the good features is you can take a picture and process it numerous times with the different picture settings right in the Olympus software and see the results and how it is effected by the processing.
