I would keep GX7 purely because its got superior features that EM5 lacks even disregarding the video shooting that others have said is better in GX7:

- Focus peaking

- 1/8000 shutter speed

- Electronic first curtain shutter to prevent shutter shock + fully electronic shutter for silent mode

- Much better manual controls through all the function buttons / dedicated buttons (there is deficated MF/AF, there is dedicated AFL/AEL which don't exist in EM5 and require use of function buttons). Clickable two mode back dial.

- Poppy uppy flash

- Tilting EVF

The 5-axis IBIS in EM5 is better but not significantly better than the GX7 IBIS, maybe 1 stop advantage but GX7 ISO performance is slightly better than the EM5 sensor too to make up for it.

I agree,

The GX7 compliments the EM-1 better as then the EM-5.
