Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II

Does the new Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II have it all ? I mean this camera even gives the Pentax K3 II a run for its money when it comes to features. I'm not into 4/3 cameras especially as a main camera, but for a backup or travel camera, I don't think this model can be beat. I have always been a fan of Olympus starting with the OM2 and OM4 both of which I owned until they started getting too weird. I looks like right now they are back on the innovation band wagon along with Pentax.

I'm surprised nobody has replied to this yet. The em5 has been enjoying huge popularity and I think there's good reason for it.

For me personally, I prefer large sensor compacts with a built in lens, like the Sony rx100. But mirrorless certainly offers more flexibility if that's what you're after.
