    Which one would be better for long exposures (more than 5 minutes)? Having to shoot a dark frame with the E-M1 is rather annoying, I presume as the E-M10 uses the E-M5 sensor, this is not needed?

    I would also guess that the E-M10 is the better choice because of the E-M5 sensor and the TruePic VII of the E-M1. But that's just a guess until someone makes a comparison.

    I've uploaded a few dark shots in this thread.

    That live composite function looks pretty darn cool for star trails.

    Yes it is :) for some long exposures though, it would be more beneficial for single shot rather than using this function, e.g. moving clouds, as it may introduce patches of moving clouds rather than a smooth one.
