I use these people for extra batteries on my OM-D and GoPros. Sometimes the batteries might not have a proprietary chip in them and won't display battery level in the camera, but otherwise are indistinguishable from OEM.

Anything surprises on the EM-5? I have read some comments about focus issues in middle distances (12-25 feet).
None for me. I have the Pan-Leica 25 on it pretty much full time. Loads of features and its a but overwhelming to sort through all the stuff to get it set up for your preferences. It's also a quantum leap from any other camera and it's hard to get my head around some of the uber high iso values.
