Dpreview text:

" The camera is built around a 16MP Four Thirds sensor, which all out testing suggests may well be the same one seen in Panasonic's DMC-G3 . This can only be seen as a welcome step forward, as it's a much newer and more capable sensor. The sensor is combined with the company's latest, TruePic VI processor, which appears to bring the usual Olympus magic to the JPEGs. The company claims improved dynamic range and, with an newer sensor and better processing, it's reasonable to expect better performance in terms of noise. And, since dynamic range is the range between highlights and a specified noise level, this would be considered a boost in dynamic range."

Richard is probably just guessing, like the rest of us. The E-M5 sensor can very well be based upon the G3 sensor, but especially the base ISO (raw) DR seems to have been improved quite a bit.
