Would you consider the E-M5 Mark II a better option to get over the M10 Mark III?

I own both the Olympus EM5 MarkII and the EM10 Mark II.
My EM10 Mark II was bought after the EM5 because I wanted a second body as a backup and small camera for hiking and travel.
I must say that I end up using the EM10 II as much or more as my EM5 II.
I don't see any difference in image quality between the two models.
The main advantage (for me) in the EM5 II is the articulated screen, that I find very useful for low level vertical framing photography.
Weather seal in the EM5 II may be also a plus point for some.

One extra significant difference is 1/8000 vs 1/4000. This could be most relevant for outdoor flash work/very bright day with faster apertures (portrait?) when you don't have ND filters.

As I understand electronic shutter on Olympus use 12-bit like mechanical so you don't loose any dynamic range.

I guess it depends upon the purpose of your photography.

I find the articulating screen a royal pain in the neck and a sure give-away that I'm shooting when I prefer to be stealthy and am using silent mode so as not to be caught in the fact.

Much prefer a tilt screen.
