Please help me to decide: Panasonic G6 or Olympus E-M10?

Hi you all !

I am going to change my Nikon DSLR and NEX gear to Micro 4/3.

Among these cameras, which one do you recommend?

  • Panasonic G6
  • Olympus E-M10

These are the lenses I am going to buy:

  • Panasonic 14-140mm II
  • Panasonic 20mm f/1.7
  • Olympus 45mm

Comments:

  • No problem with E-M10 interface, I like it a lot. I like G6 interface too.
  • I prefer Panasonic G6 camera design, tilting LCD. video, timelapse, battery, WiFi connectivity, e-shutter
  • I prefer Olympus E-M10 IBIS, live composite mode, 0 sec anti shock, auto ISO ... DXO says sensor is better but I don't know in practice, how much better is because I saw many pics below ISO 6400 and they seem the same. Love G6 colors too. Did I miss something?

My questions:

  • In practice, is there really much difference between G6 and -M10E sensors?
  • In your opinion, which camera has better AF for moving subjects (people walking and so on)? Is GX7 better in that respect?
  • Other considerations?

Thanks friends!
