I've removed the batt from mine for 5 days straight and the date and time/settings were still retained.

Amazing. This makes no sense at all (if) the E-M5 actually has an internal Li-Mn button-battery. They hold a charge for up to 90 days in Panasonic cameras. It is very likely that this is an indication that Olympus E-M5 uses a capacitor (only) - which discharges relatively quickly (by comparison).
