Are images from the E-m1 actually better than from the E-m5?

The sensor of the E-M 5 is good enough that it's rather hard to discern noise at ISO200 (and that's with auto gradiation switched on, the shadows already pushed and noise filter set to off). That is with the JPEG engine though - one of the raw converters (perhaps Capture One or ACR) might give a more accurate picture :-).

Well a simple way of testing noise....

1) Set camera to manual

2) Put lens cap on lens

3) Set 1 sec exposure

4) highlight noise with 'auto tone' or 'auto contrast' in PS

BTW here is a video illustrating noise at different isos on the 7D
