EM-5 with long exposures?

Hi all,
I'm about to buy an EM-5, however one last thing is stopping me. Long exposure photography is my main passion, and I used to do it with my E-5 at ISO 100. The E-5 struggled with long exposures at ISO 200 (quite noisy), however this is the base ISO for the EM-5.

I have googled and searched the internet about the EM-5 for long exposures, but I have found different  statements.
See for example: 
- http://markhilliardatelier.wordpress.com/2013/01/27/olympus-omd-em5-and-ultra-long-exposures/#comment-786, in which the author states the EM-5 is perfectly fine for long exposures
-http://robknightphotography.com/blueridge-photo-fest-2012/ in which the author says the EM-5 is not so good for long exposures.
So I'm a bit confused now. I mainly shoot long exposures in the 30-60 second zone. I would really appreciate an answer to this question and I'm hoping there are people here who experienced the EM-5 with long exposures.
