Thanks to all now im really considering the e-m10 now I have a question is it more comfortable to hold in hand or is the e-m5 more comroftable? Also how many shots can the battery of the em10 take? I read that the e-m5 can take 500 at least does the e-m10 even compare?

Good question.  The Oly specs rate the E-M5 and E-M10 batteries very similarly.  Whether that's true in real life I can't say.  I get substantially more shots on an E-M5 battery than Oly says.  The electrical capacity of the E-M5 battery is greater than the E-M10 battery.  Whether the E-M10 has been tweaked enough to improve power management enough to overcome additional power draws like wifi is an open question that probably varies a lot from user to user, depending on things like how much you use the rear LCD, how much you use wifi (not an issue with the E-M5, obviously), how much you use the flash, etc.
