It's been stated numerous times in this forum that certain manufacturers overstate their ISOs in order to make their cameras seem to have better noise performance than they actually do.

True

It may have been stated numerous times, but it's been equally wrong each time, too.

The OP provides evidence that the EM5 is an outlier - strangely enough massively in its favor, resulting in some interesting false-positive publicity, per his later post. This is one of my favorites, where the EM5 obviously performs as good as physical limits allow for its format.  Does a neutrino travel faster than the speed of light?  The Italians think so

Right.
