Hi JoeBetween the 2models, I can suggest you to go for Canon PowerShot SX710 HS   -  Canon PowerShot SX710 HS It has a higher camera resolutionhigher shutter speed on the maximum scale meaning you will be able to capture fast-paced images.Optical Zoom of 30x which will allow for distant images without distorting the quality.Full HD video recording at 30fps.

Jose, If you are willing to shell out 28k for the Olympus model, you might as well buy the Sony Cybershot DSC RX100 II .  It is one of the best advanced point&shoot out there in the market.
