See the links in the first post. You may have to click on the camera name in the right pane. The linked chart clearly shows the noise issue on the E-M5 between ISO 200 and 400.

Various posts over the years have said that the Panasonic sensor used by the earlier Pens tends to have less noise when you use the full stop ISO's (200, 400, 800, 1600, 3200) rather than the intermediate versions.  There is an option to only use whole stops in auto ISO.  It sounds like the same is probably true of the Sony sensor used in the E-M5, E-PL5, and E-PM2.
