What do you need?

Answering a question w many more...
First, what do you like about the 420, and where does it fall short?
What lenses do you now have?

Do you need a single lens solution that would add IS or would higher resolution and higher ISOs be more of a boost for you?

Just checked... the PL 14-150 is $1400 on Amazon, while the E-M5 is only $999... add the new 12-50 lens for only $300 or a 4/3 adapter for as little as $60...
less than the PL alone
Are you looking to the future or digging in ?
How many clicks on your 410? Lightly used or time to upgrade?

Other options:
If you're looking to add IS, maybe consider the E-620 instead

If you need more reach and you don't have the 40-150, that can be had for much less than the 14-150.
Or look at the 70-300 for under $300 used.
