Even if you were right, you'd be wrong

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!

Larger sensors still win. I like this portion of the test setup because it's green (should have the best resolution - twice as many green pixels in the sensor as red and blue) and low-contrast (shows heavy-handed noise reduction). What road is that?

Even if you were right (which you aren't), this camera shows how these cameras can never be small and include a half-way decent EVF at the same time. Good EVF = big EVF optics, as any telescope owner knows (telescope eyepieces follow the same rule, of course). And these cameras have little point if they aren't small, which they aren't, especially if you include a lens.
