Re: Bizzare decision, if that is true.

Whoever says that there's no difference between the GH2 and the Sony 16mp sensor in the D7000/K5/A580/5N hasn't pushed their cameras that hard. There's a bout a stop in ISO performance, and a whopping 2.5 stops in DR.

That's just not possible with the GH2, and the shadow pushing done by DPreview is still only little of what's possible.

According to Michael Recihmann that is also true for newer APS-c: you don't see the difference between the best APS-c's and the GH2. So I am not surprised.

Otoh: the Pany is 16 Mpixel and the Canon 8 Mpixel. So at large print sizes the difference will be quite noticable. At lower ISO, Gh2 has better DR too but this may not be visible on trends.

May it is a bit like a dual core processor, quad core etc. If the software doesn't use the cores but one: no difference. But once the CPU is fully used you'll note the difference.
