How to choose between Olympus EM1 and 5?

I am looking at both cameras and using the imaging Resource comparometer the EM5 looks just as good as the EM1 even at 6400 ISO.

Can someone enlighten what the differences are and how to choose which camera?

My targets are:

- Small body

- Good AF in low light

- Good low light/high ISO capabilities

- Built in Flash for fill in flash.

- Weather sealing would be a bonus.

I take a lot of travel photos, low light pictures and family pictures and the odd action picture of my son.
