Looking to potentially purchase one of the above (my first Olympus cameras), and was wondering what the real pros and cons were of each - EM10 vs EM5.

I know the newer EM10 has a much lower price, and potentially at least, better image quality due to the newer sensor and imaging pipeline, but how much better in reality - if at all ? I've seen some pretty stunning images taken with the EM5.

I also know the EM5 has full weather sealing and the 5 axis IBIS (whereas the EM10 isn't weather sealed and only 3 Axis IBIS). Does the EM5 have the latest feature set i.e. focus peaking etc. Also, does the "only" 640k dot screen look much worse than the 1 million k dot screen of the EM10 ?

I think what I am trying to get at is the Em5 is a 2 year old camera - Is it still viable as a new purchase in 2014 with the Em5 sitting below it at a much lower price and seemingly (on paper at least) giving away little to it's bigger brother.

Could any OMD experts chime in please ?
