Used camera, worth buying?

Hi M43 friends,

i'd like to ask your opinion about my next purchase. I own a GH4, amazing camera for video but just good for stills (the gh5 for what i saw is really really good at both, big improvment in still).
Now i would like to get another camera just for still, i do not want to upgrade to GH5 (at least not now) because i want the dedicated still camera body to be more portable, so i'm really oriented to the OMD series from Olympus.

Here in italy i've found few OMD EM5 at a price around 300-350Euro (350-400$) you think it is worth the price or you think i should go for a new OMD-EM10 or similiar?
I mean, IQ for sure is slightly improved in 5 years but is the price difference worth?
OMD EM5II is amazingly beautiful (my favourite) but is still fitting a 16Mp sensor...if i have to pay more then 800$ i would like to have at least the new generation sensor, is my argument solid in your opinion?
Thank you for your suggenstions
