As a small update, dpreview think the G3 sensor good but not great:

with lots of noise reduction or just more a bit more noise if you avoid it. However they seem to think allowing for the size it's a big step up from where they were (although potential new users might not care about making allowances for sensor size, as they can always choose an APS EVIL camera).

Well, to my eyes, the RAW samples provided by the review look pretty much like I had expected based on the DxO measurements and the jpegs I have already seen. Possibly, they look a tad worse than I thought they would, but I think that's largely because the DPR tests shots for the G3 are a bit darker than for some other cameras, making the shadow noise slightly more visible.

Plus here:

They say the Samsung (who I've always thought of making quite noisy cameras) NX11 is better.

Don't know what they are tallking about. To my knowledge, the NX11 has the same sensor as the NX10 and NX100, and these are all clearly behind the GH2 and G3 in spite of the fact that the Samsungs benefit from a larger sensor area.
