If I could get either at a similar price, I'd go with the E-M5. The E-M5's 5-axis stabilization is much better than the E-M10's 3 axis for still images and movies.

You guys need to vastly update your prices, for comparisons, they're WAY out. Also, more details on thing like IBIS. How many axes?

E-M5 has also a live-MOS sensor. E-M10 has a self cleaning sensor
