M5 mark ii and m10 mark iv

Ok...this is a really specific question, I know. I had decided to purchase an m10 mark iv. It doesn't have everything I wanted from m5 mark iii, but it is a full $300 cheaper, even more if you buy a kit. But now Olympus reduced the price on M5 mark ii.

From what I can tell, M5 mark ii :


  • has 16mp sensor
  • Has CDAF, same as m10 mark iv (is the latter improved in any way?)
  • has 84 af points to 121 for m10 mark iv
  • has 1080p video to 4k (don't care)
  • has no USB charging (would have cared more if I could charge as I used the camera)
  • has no Bluetooth
  • is almost 100g heavier


  • Has more rugged build
  • Is weather sealed
  • Has fully articulating screen
  • Has pro capture and hi res
  • Almost the same ibis
  • Is $150 cheaper

Now this is the spec sheet. But does anybody have experience with both these cameras that can point out some real world differences?

My use case is mostly travel and family pics, and some astrophotography.
