Not sure what you mean; the GX1 is older but as far as I know there is no GX2 to replace it yet, just G5 or GF5, neither of which is in the same class cost-wise.

I used the GX1 because it's what I had; I'm not a camera reviewer. Just posting my thoughts on the GX1 and surprises I had coming from DX/FX.

I thought the exact same thing. What is the point in using an older M43 model for comparison sake? Unless it's more conveniant for you take make your point.

What he meant, and I alluded to, was that you reviewed the GX1 and then made this statement

Overall, though, I still had fun using the camera and found it mostly got out of my way when taking photos. I'm sure m43 will continue to evolve over time, and hopefully reach "good enough" in a few years. I'd like to see less MP and more focus on noise issues, though.

The GX1 isn't leading edge m4/3's so your statement that m4/3's isn't yet good enough (or words to that effect) isn't correct if it's based only on the GX1. Both the OMD and the GH3 are most definitely significantly better. If you haven't shot with either then you haven't tried the best m4/3's cameras. It's a bit like me saying the same for the D700 and dismissing full frame when I haven't tried the D800.

Don't forget the E-PM2, and E-PL5 since they also are using the newer sensor.
