What is "outdated tech?"

You say you'd buy another E-M5 except that it's now no longer cutting edge.  If your previous E-M5 enabled you to do the photography which you wanted to do, why look any further?

Many of us get so caught up in having the best camera (or home, car, or spouse) that we lose sight of what having a meaningful experience is all about.  Of course we can be impeded by the limitations of our gear, and in those situations if a better alternative is available there's nothing wrong with trying for a better fit for one's needs.  But as you've found with the E-M5, photographic technology has advanced to the point where it's now easily possible to purchase a camera which poses virtually no serious limitations in achieving one's imaging goals, no matter what those goals may be.

Stop lamenting.

Stop wanting even more advanced technological devices.

Start photographing.

Almost all of the greatest photographs were taken by cameras and recording media woefully inferior to what is available today.

As long as you can find a "good" camera for you, embrace it and learn how to meld with it and let it become a true extension of your photographic eye.  Striving for that, instead of purchasing the latest and greatest camera will yield infinitely better photographs.
