x-T1 + 18-135 v E-M10ii - Sell, keep or buy?

I got lucky and won a X-T1 with 18-135 lens

Just before I bought a EM10ii with 14-42 pancake lens plus 45mm lens

I also own two FX Nikon bodies and some lenses. I will be selling enough of this to put towards a vacation and another quality lens.
(either Nikon 70-200 f4. Or, if I stick with Olympus, 12-40 pro. Else a prime for the Fuji)

So - why consider selling the Fuji? (note I only owned for a week)

1) Hate the small buttons. Keep having to move camera from eye to see where they are.
2) I keep knocking the EV dial (something I never use),

3) when I change ISO I end up changing the drive dial (major design flaw)

4) Crazy continuous AF - forever hunts in viewfinder, though (thanks to a previous post on these forums) I discovered it does focus fine.

5) The Fuji ISO lie - Hmmm, enough said already on this

Of course, there's a lot to love too...Super sensor and popping fuji jpegs to name just two. And the lens: I would never dreamed of buying the 18-135 (I'd have bought the 18-55 or a couple primes instead). But I'm darned impressive with quality for a superzoom.

Is the 18-55 so much better in same range? Maybe I sell and buy 18-55 plus 55-200?

OR should I sell the Olympus? -

Obviously not as good at high ISO
C-AF is so bad it's non-existent

What I like -
S-AF is super fast.
Size is super small

OS with my Nikon lenses
I shoot landscape and street, sometimes wildlife (would like to more). 
I occasionally shoot weddings so need at least two bodies.

I like to hike and this is why I bought the EM10ii, for something a little lighter

I shoot a fair bit in low light.

No matter what, I will keep at least one Nikon camera and most lenses...
