EM1.3 vs EM1.2 - worth the difference?
1

As noted in previous threads I've been thinking a lot about buying a EM1.2 and pairing it with the 12-40 f2.8 in order to benefit from the 5-axis IBIS that would enable me to do:

- handheld In camera HDR for photographing church interiors

- handheld 0.5 sec exposures to produce clean images and light trails at night

However, I'm now wondering whether it would be better to go the whole hog and just buy the EM1.3.

1) Is the IBIS on the EM1.2 sufficient for me to do the two things above?

2) Would the improved IBIS on the EM1.3 be a significant improvement?

3) Is the EM1.3 a big enough improvement on the EM1.2 - even with the firmware updates on the latter to justify the extra £300-400 cost?

4) Is there anything that the EM1.3 does worse than the EM1.2? I heard someone say that the HDR functionality in manual was actually worse in the EM1.3.
