On a budget, it would be hard to pick a EM1 over a PM2 which has the same sensor and can be had for $200 in the used market. And produce similar shots for the most part if one knows how to handle the PM2.

a pretty well spec'd camera and gives access to a huge system.

I have both an M1 and a PM2. I would give up the PM2 first, because giving up the M1 would mean giving up too many useful tools.

At one time, almost every camera had the same sensor, 35mm film. It was still worthwhile to spend much more on top of line equipment, because you got better tools.
