I doubt that the G3 will outperform at RAW level...however in this thread we are just discussing in-camera JPEG performance, which is what the overwhelming majority of buyers use.

Yeah but... what kind of users are we talking about? Not that I want to discriminate but I mean if you include P&S upgraders or people who just want to take pictures at barbecues and family meals, then yes for sure the overwhelming majority uses ooc jpegs... but are we not, here, in the frame of more "serious" photography... that is, people who, with more or less success, have decided to dedicate themselves to photography, either as a profession, an art or an advanced hobby - and therefore want to make the best out of their pictures? Except for some professionals who exposes all their pictures properly and/or have to produce so much volume that they have no time for postprocessing, I think you'll find that RAW users are quite a number. Are we not talking about an enthusiast camera? Indeed you might be somehow right and this then raises some market positioning issues...
