I don't think you would be able to use the 12-40mm in the pt housings, the problem is the diameter of the lens is too wide to fit the housing. There would be no way one of the Olympus focus rings would fit unless they design something new.

Sorry Kevindale222 I have been away.

You would not need thermal protection as far as gloves go. Personally I would like a better feeling operating the camera than 3mm gloves give but each to their own! What ever you decide I am sure you will have a great trip.

I spent a long time with similar thoughts to you...... I ended up going for the E-M1 and I can honestly say I am glad I did, I am still getting used to the cameras operation but the results I am getting I could not be more happy with. If you can afford it I would say go for the EM1.

I would also say buy the best you can afford, otherwise you will just end up replacing it further down the line when you realise something cheaper just doesn't do the job.
