OM-D E-M10 II or OM-D E-M5 II

Hello, hoping you can help me settle on a camera.

I am looking to get into the mirrorless camera market and have settled on Olympus due to the lens ecosystem at an affordable price.

I travel quite often and enjoy both photographing my trips as well as recording video (for short travel videos). Since I often hike in remote areas, its enjoyable to get some astro shot as well such as the milky wy. In the past, I have used a GoPro and Canon SL1. My goal with the Olympus is to merge the two into a single package with better quality.

I had the opportunity to test E-M5 II with a 7-14mm lens and really loved it. However, I am trying to decide if the extra cost for the e5 will really provide enough value to spend more. Below is what I am trying to decide between

Option 1: $699


Olympus 14-42 II R Lens
Olympus 40-150 II Lens

Option 2: $ 1,098



Thanks, i welcome your input.
