E-M10 or GX7???

I'm beginning to see the point of MILC's.  I just sold my Canon 60D and lenses (too big, too heavy) and am considering an M4/3 camera.  The two models mentioned look good in the reviews, and the cost is manageable.  The first two lenses considered would be the Panasonic 14-140, and either the Panasonic 20 f/1.7, or the Olympus 17 f/1.8.

The use of the camera would be mostly for travel; but also some family portraits and group shots, and some shots of my grandkid's ice hockey.

I'd like to hear from folks who have one body or the other, and maybe some with experience with those lenses.

One thing I came across was the vibration caused by the shutter at 1/50 second.  I had not previously heard of that.  The GX7 is supposedly immune from that if the electronic shutter option isused.  Does use of that have other effects?  As in undesireable effects!

The other thing I came across was the tight lens mount on the E-M10.    Quite a few posts on that.  Is there a fix in the works?  It doesn't appear to be random thing, as folks are swapping cameras and finding the same problem.  I had that issue decades ago with a film Nikon and aftermarket multipliers being too tight with Tamron lenses and the Adaptall Mount.  So that's a real issue for me.
