20 MP vs 16 MP Dynamic Range

Hi:

I have been shooting for a number of years with twin om-d e-m10 mark ii.

I have been on the fence as to upgrades waiting to see what unfolds. For me, the functionality of the m10 bodies is fine, as I shoot stills only but….. I would like some additional MP’s for printing….without compromising dynamic range at ISO 800 and below.

My question is two fold:

What 20 mp mft (Olympus/OM or Panasonic) has the greatest dynamic range in RAW for base ISO ?

And;

Is the DR at least as wide as the 16 mp m10 mk ii ?

From the rather disjointed info that is available (Dpreview , DxOMark, Robin Wong, Photons to Photos) , it seems to be the Om-d e-m1 mark ii meets this criteria, but I’d appreciate any observations that confirm and/or contradict this.

Thanks;
