Olympus's E-M10III, a lesser camera than the E-M5II, is now $100.00 more expensive (in Canada)
because of discounts on the E-M5II. This kind of price difference is the strange part of the camera
world.  Pentax's admittedly overpriced KP costs more than the vastly higher-spec'd K3II.  Age of
models is the key thing here. Though you don't see this happening much with Canon an Nikon and Sony
has so many models that they all blur at the mid-end.

And that is why I've jumped off thios madness of constant upgrading.
My current digital camera is a EM5II and it will stay that way for a 
looooong time!

After seeing the modest differences between the 16mp and 20mp sensors, I tend to agree.  The E-M5II
still has class-leading IBIS as well.

Warning: OT mini rant:
That is true about a lot of things: On a much smaller level, It helped 
my business image, to wear the latest trend in ties. When the latest in 
fashion ties went out of fashion, I kept them in my closet until they 
came back into fashion. (which they did.) I now have several hundred 
ties that are going to the Salvation Army.

Back OT. If a piece of equipment is doing a satisfactory job, keep it. 
For me photography, and production of images is the fun. For others, the 
fun may be collecting cameras and lenses. Some spend over ten grand for 
a lens that gets used, maybe two days a year. I won't criticize them for 
it. it's their money and they can do as they like with it, so long they 
are not using it to hurt me.
IOW I like the "madness of upgrading." I keeps the prices of cameras I 
like to user affordable for me.
