Have you seen the red leaf swatches at ISO 1600 and 3200 in IRs preview of the G3?
See the comparison with Nikon D5100?

No. I believe there will always be an exception, but the image extracts I have checked so far show what we have all been told so often could never happen - that µ4/3 could never produce better images (OOC or otherwise) than APS-C.

That does not mean everyone should sell their DSLRs and switch to Panasonic - just that the tables have been convincingly reversed. I don't think this is the last word in µ4/3 superiority, either.

The swatches shows heavy NR in red. Otherwise the results are good, but they show that it is hard to draw wild conclusions about true performance yet.

The G3 IQ looks promising but are you not a little premature in your conclusions?

Prediction/conclusion, summary - whatever.

Do you really think that µ4/3 sales will go backwards because of this???

Guess which market share is suffering??
