G3 heralds the end of APS-C DSLRs
May 13, 2011

Apart from some of its snazzy features, like selectable background defocus control, the sheer image quality of the new sensor leaves any APS-C camera in its wake at high ISO and JPEG output.

Bear in mind that I am a former G1 owner, a current Nikon D700 owner and until today was a prospective Olympus E-PL2 owner.

This comparison is nothing short of amazing (click on "Original" at the top of the image):

My jpeg screenshot won't do the G3 justice - just make your own analysis from this page:


Panasonic cracks the noise barrier - actually the noise and JPEG in-camera processing barrier. What a winner!
