I can't say for sure, but my EM1 with several lenses focuses pretty instant in dim light but I'm using the small center single focus point only as well. Maybe that helps who knows. The ONLY camera I've used that is more sure footed in dim to dark light to focus has been a Canon 6D I tried with will focus down to -3EV and no other camera will. So I'd say on par the EM1 does quite well. If you haven't tried setting your EM1 to the small single center focus point give it a try.

I believe that both the new GX7 and GM1 are also capable of focusing down to -3EV even if slightly slower than when brighter.
