You're using one of the Panasonic based sensor pen's. My E5 in long exposure has similar level of noise even with the dark frame subtraction turned on and a similar 4/3 sensor to yours. Once you've turned on the dark frame subtraction you've done all the right things to get less noise.

I use my Canon for long exposure night photography to avoid the problem.

I have not yet tried my EM5 for this. The sensor on the EM5 may behave entirely ok for longish exposures.

I usually use 30 sec range exposures at iso 800 for night photography with the F stop set to vary depending on exposure needs.
