I am considering both of these cameras for my wife who has an interest in returning to photography as a retirement hobby. Hard to say what type of photography she will settle on but I anticipate she will try her hand at landscapes, people and just general shots for now.

The earlier version of the E-M10 is selling for a significant discount to the Mark Two version. I can afford either but also realize that this may be a passing fancy. Thoughts or other camera options that I should be looking at for a soon to be birthday gift of which instruction will be a part?
