E-M1 vs E-M5II -

Kinda looking at Oly users who have used both. Im a portrait shooter mainly, and am hoping things like EYE AF will prove useful. But is the EM1 with PDAF any better in that regard? I read DPR's reviews and they don't really mention if eye tracking is even available in C-AF modes.

If nothing else i will be more than happy with the EM1, but the 5 offers a stop or so better IBIS, high rez mode, and a front facing screen, all for $100 more. But i don't want to sacrifice too much C-AF power, especially with kids who have a habit of moving around a lot.

Any info or feedback is appreciated, i have about 2 weeks before i buy, maybe a bit less.

"Step forward and meet a new sunrise, A coward is shivering inside
Today I'll be a friend of mine, Who swallows suffering with smile
I drew a different reality, With unconditional loyalty
Ego hardly can be piqued, 'Cause I'm selfless
Scale armour blaze, Virgin innocence
One being brings life, Another runs for death
No promises I ever give, Don't rely on me and I won't deceive
The beginning or the end you can't tell
When I wave my fin and shake my tail
I grew in different normality, With unblamable morality
Hooks and nets are there for me, But I'm skittish
Scale armour blaze, Virgin innocence
One being brings life, Another runs for death
Neptune's child shivering inside, Drowns in the liquid gold
Cherished his life to the underworld, Meet me flashing when winter cries
Pisces swimming through the river, All their life against the stream
Searching for a hook to catch on and see their sun beam
Then suffocate in painful tortures, On cutting tables of callous men
Under a knife of handsome butchers, Emeralds are ripped away..."
