I think you are right about the conclusion (more detail from GH2) but not about the reasons. To my knowledge, there are no reports suggesting that the A55 does NR in RAW, and a site like DxOMark would surely have spotted it (they are pretty good at that by now). However, the GH2 (as well as several other m43 cameras) have very weak AA filters, and this, along with the high pixel density of the GH2 (and good lenses) makes for unusually good resolution.

There is not one camera maker that does not manipulate their RAW file. period. Even the RAW file is a conversion done by the processor (to become digital). Its how new models get better in RAW mode despite using the same sensor. DxO would have certainly miss this because they dont look or take into account the camera's processor. Pentax learned this the hard way after the K7, Now suddenly the K5 is the best thing ever.
