New or used E-M1 mk III : help choosing

So, I'm going on a trip soon and I've scouted in advance the best places I can buy an E-M1 mk III, now that they're finally available for a price I can afford (thanks OM-1!).

I'm torn between two choices, so decided to ask here for people with more experience buying new and used camera gear. If you had to choose, which of the following would you buy, and why? Are the new condition and 18 months of extra warranty worth the extra ~300USD?
