EM5 Mark III vs. EM5 Mark II

There seems to be a lot of chatter regarding the new EM5 Mark III vs. the EM1.  Fair enough, it seems many people here own the EM1.  I happen to own the EM5 II and saw that Olympus announced the OMD EM5 III while I was away.

I'd like to get people's opinion on the III over the older II.  It seems to me that the III is a small update in some respects.  Olympus couldn't (or wouldn't) do too much improvements, lest they cannibalize the EM1.

I like the phase detect AF, and 20MP sensor, but do I need 20MP?  I'm seemingly happy with the Mark II and I don't see any major benefit to upgrading other then the AF system.  Trade in value for my Mark II body is in the 300 range (kind of sad I guess), and the price of a new body is 1,200, so I'll be out of pocket 900.  Am I wrong in seeing nothing earth shattering?
