The real test is comparison of RAW files that have the highlights brought back and the shadows lifted.

Pulling back highlights and lifting shadows really reveals a sensor's characteristics and is one reason I love my D800 as the NEF files are very very malleable, even at higher ISOs.

My GH-2 is just fine at higher ISOs, until I start trying to bring back highlights and lift shadows using the RW2 files - then they tend to fall apart due to noise, color cast, banding, etc.

We will have to wait for a RAW converter that supports the EM1 (and GX7) to really evaluate these new cameras/sensors.
