The G3 does pretty well for what it is. And what it is is a ton of photosites on a sensor size that's just large enough to be acceptable compared to DSLRs but to never, ever outperform a contemporary larger sensor camera in terms of ISO performance, dynamic range and color accuracy.

Quite correct. It also helps when ISO 3200 is about a stop under its rated ISO - the image posted looks underexposed by approximately one stop to me. The G3 sensor seems very good for what it is, but it is not superior to a DSLR.

It will be interesting to see what the G3 is capable of in RAW when the full review is posted.
