Probably not a co-incidence. Probably the GH2 sensor is a Sony.

Unlikely: it is the Panasonic MN34070, as explained in this post:

See details here directly:

Yes, someone has already pointed that out, see above. Still possible though that the designs, or some part of the IP is licenced and fabricated by Panasonic.

Maybe ....

Or maybe not - but if not Panasonic has done a good job getting very close to Sony's levels of performance.

True, I think both sensors are good, they have small differences, let's see now if the G5 sensor is a new one or an improved from the GH2 sensor, it is good that it is a fully digital sensor, they can control better the image quality, and I am thinking now that the GH3 will have another sensor with more megapixels, let's wait to know, and read the reviews when they come out

Imagination is more important than knowledge.
