Then today I came across the Olympus E-M5 III with its impressive 7,5 IBIS + OIS stabilization.

I believe the 7.5-stop IBIS rating is for the E-M1, with Sync IS compatible lenses. The E-M5, I believe, is rated at 5.5 stops (6.5 with Sync IS compatible lenses, but I don't believe the lenses you're looking at are Sync IS compatible). That's still a lot of stabilization, but not quite as big a difference from the Sony, which is rated at 4.5 stops.

In any event, if you're willing to use an ILC, the sensor on the Olympus is considerably larger than the Sony, which may matter given your specific need for better low light performance. I have the em10, not the em5, but it's a great little camera, with some fun tricks up its sleeve. I'd lean heavily toward the Olympus for the larger sensor and the flexibility of interchangeable lenses, but a lot of this is personal preference.
