The review here (ephotozine ) has this statement:

Olympus says that the ISO performance has been improved by 2 stops, and ISO6400 is as good as ISO1600 on the E-M5 II, according to Olympus.

If that ISO improvement is anywhere near true, I will change my mind and be seriously interested.

It's a lie. The ISO performance can not be improved by even one stop, because physics. [...]

While a two-stop advantage does seem like a lot, don't you think it might be worth waiting for actual measurements and experience with the camera before calling it a lie?

No need to wait. What Olympus says is about OOC JPEGs. So it's basically about improved noise reduction.

Sensor wise, we know exactly what the performance is, since it's the same sensor as in E-M1 Mark II and E-M1X and the only difference might be a result of how it is "configured" (for example, ISO shift on E-M1X was different than on E-M1 II).

So here's a comparison
