G9 vs EM1-II ?

I currently have an EM1.1 along with the Panny 14 2.5, Oly 45 1.8, a 4/3 adapter and two Olympus 4/3 kit lenses, 14-42 and 40-150. FYI this is not the last of the glass i buy but im holding off on that till i know which way i go with the bodies, a G9 would probably warrant more Panny glass in the future, and visa versa.

As for the two bodies im thinking of picking one up but both are very similar in a lot of ways. I will be looking through other sources for info but would appreciate anything here as well. So far it seems the G9 has a bigger EVF (the biggest ever i guess?) and shoots 2fps faster with C-AF and E shutter. Both have high rez modes, both are 20mp, both have 400 shot battery life. Both have FAS and 4k.

Just looking for any other info that might be pertinent. Do either have much worse rolling shutter (i use E shutter as much as often), does one have substantially better high rez modes? Is C-AF similar (i know DFD is a factor dependent on lenses) ? Is there a sensor crop in 4k for either?

For the record im much more of a still shooter than video, and i mostly shoot portraits but will likely be widening that as i go (kids are getting into sports, will be vacationing more in near future). I suppose reviewers may answer some of this but i also value real world experience. This would likely be the last body i buy for many years so i want to get it right. Any and all info is much appreciated!

Everybody defamates from miles away
But face to face they haven't got a thing to say
I bleed for this and I bleed for you
Still you look at my face like I'm somebody new
Toy nobody wants anything I've got
Which is fine because your made of everything i'm not" -
