I lean towards the EM10

I think they are both great cameras

The form factor may be the biggest differentiator: RF style vs SLT style

the EM10 + grip is a pleasure to hold , especially with large lenses

I own the EM10 and have toyed with the GX7 and I find the build a bit better with the EM10

The EM10 EVF seems brighter, larger, and sharper to my eyes

The EM10 has IBIS + 81 AF point to the 23 AF point and no IBIS on the GX7

EM10 2 dial system is a pleasure to use

The GX7 has better video

Pana menu system may be easier to the novice than the Olympus

EM10 can shoot 8fps vs 5 for the GX7

Best is to borrow from someone and handle both for everything else should be similar including IQ

You can't go wrong with either

Also think about the whole system for Oly lenses work better on Oly bodies and vice versa

Best wishes,

Cheers
