Another em5 or an em10?

I recently paired down all my stuff and now I'm down to only one m43 body. I'm the sort of person who has to have 2 bodies when I travel.

I thought I would get a gx7 until I tried one. The viewfinder is tiny compared to the gh2 or em5 I've been using. It was all but impossible to use with glasses. I just could not cozy up to it. I think I'm just spoiled by the em5.

So I'm getting either another em5 or em10.

I like the slightly smaller em10, and the new features, like focus peaking. I have only two concerns.

Is its the viewfinder substantially similar to the em5?

Is the 3 axis IS much less effective than the 5 axis? I have a hand tremor so it's important.

Anyone want to advise me?
