This from Amateur Photographer's magazine Review of E-m5:

"we have not seen any m4/3 cameras offer Dynamic Range much over 10 EV.

"This performance falls short of most APS-C cameras, which typically have dynamic ranges of over 12 EV AND there is NO reason to suspect that the E-M5 is any better than its peers".

Although, since they failed to do any useful testing there is NO reason NOT to suspect it is any better than its peers. They've no idea, basically.

These tests appear to be valueless as well.

Timur's tests here imply GH2 levels which is actually pretty good (AP wrong again, arguably).

If you really want to know, you'll have to wait for DxO. The best info you can find in the meantime is in here. I'd not bother with photo magazines, they don't seem to have much of a clue generally.
