Panasonic G9 vs Olympus EM-1 M II

Now that the EM-1 Mark ii is on sale for about the same price as the G9, how do they compare?

I've been wanting something that is more competent for moving subjects (kids and dogs mostly). Ideally a mid range EM-5 m iii or G95 with new sensors, but I'm not sure if I have enough patience to wait it out. These high end M43 cameras might be too big for some of the lenses that I currently have.

I like Olympus's smaller body and phase detect AF. It also has a few nice features like live composite, more robust high res mode.

Panasonic has a better viewfinder, faster second SD card slot, better, DFD (not sure how new version compares to Olympus' hybrid AF or the GH5's AF), USB charging.
