trying to decide which Olympus body to get

I'm trying to decide which Olympus camera body to get between the EM1X and the EM1.3.  Is the dual processor of the EM1X worth the extra money and weight? With the EM1.3 you can slim down the physical weight and size as needed, which can be nice when needed.  Is there anything else I am missing? This camera will become my main camera for birding and wildlife, and my EM5.3 will become my backup and my EPL10 will remain my underwater camera and wife's camera.

Pricing (from BandH):

EM1X - $2000

EM1.3 - $1600

HLD-9 Battery Grip - $250

Battery for grip - $55

Total price is $1,905


EM1X - 997g

EM1.3 - 580g + 255.1g + 74  = 909g

I take photos, not particularly good photos, mostly abstract photos. Yeah abstract is what I would call them, you might call them blurry.
