Re: e-m10 or e-m5

To me, the biggest advantages the em5 have over the em10 are the 5 axis stabilisation, weather sealing, and battery grip.

The biggest advantages the em10 have over the em5 are an em1 level image processor, wifi, and more up to date firmware. I certainly wouldn't say olympus has abandoned the em5, but it is closer to being replaced than the other two, and while the em1 and em10 both got the anti shock firmware update a few weeks ago, no update was released for the em5.

I own the em10, and unless you are REALLY going to be shooting in severe weather environments, that's the camera I would recommend. The way I see it Olympus made the em5, learned from that and made the em1, then learned from that and made the em10.

That's not to say the em10 is the best of the bunch, that's clearly the em1, but I do feel the em10 has benefited from lessons learned from the cameras that came before it.
