Yeah, the stabilization on the Pens is good for at most two stops, and I find it is really only about one stop better than the standard 'rule of thumb' since you lose a stop due to holding a tiny camera out away from your body vs. a viewfinder against your head. Thus, handholdability is about 1/FL, as opposed to 1/(2xfl) as normal on m4/3.
I don't think the Pens also have similar burst rates as the E-M5, but I could be wrong (the E-M5 does 9 fps). I think you'd be happier going to an E-PL5, though, as I think you'd miss the controls going from an E-M5 all the way to an E-PM2.
If I remember correctly, in the last generation E-P3 and E-PL3 IBIS was rated for 3 stops and E-PM1 had a downgraded 2-stop IBIS. The E-PM5 of course got a new 5-axis IBIS, but I don't know how the IBIS of E-PL5 and E-PM2 compare now.
