Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mk I still relevant?


I'm a long time reader here. I need your opinion regarding buying the e-m10 Mk I.

I'm a Nikon user, having shot with a d5100 and now a d7100. I kept my d5100 for its smallish size and weight, but I've never gotten around to keep it on me all the time.

Ever since the Mk I OM-Ds were released in my country in 2014, I've been a fan, due to the size and the retroish look.

The Olympus distributors here have not launched the Mk II or III versions, for lack of much favorable response to the cameras; we're a Canikon people. They're clearing their stocks and are offering the E-M5 and E-M10 single-lens kits at half the original prices.

My questions:

Is the E-M10 Mk I still a relevant camera?

Does it make sense replacing the D5100 with the E-M10 as a walkaround camera?

E-M10 or E-M5? I'm leaving towards the E-M10 due to the tiny lens size.

I'll be keeping the D7100 as my main/action/event camera and the E-M10 as a stuff-in-your-pocket camera.

Thanks for your patience, I hope you help me see the light
