This is kind of what I do now, shooting at ISO800 instead of ISO500, but I dial +2/3EV (not -, but +) to get a RAW file with an exposure closer to what I want, and avoid pushing it too much at development. Then of course I destroy the JPG, and I cannot correctly check the exposure in the LCD...

BTW, you never want to use intermediate ISO settings - you'll just get integer arithmetic applied to your raw file, which isn't good.

Unless Olympus writes the same raw and just alters the EXIF - that might be the case, there was an argument here about some whizzy feature (can't remember which) which turned out to write two identical raw files.
