Studio scene comparison (higher sensitivities)

Although the saturation of the G1's images drops as the sensitivity rises, the amount of rendered detail is well preserved. This is exactly the result we'd expect to see if chroma noise reduction was quite high but luminance noise reduction was kept low. It's a credit to the camera's jpeg engine that it's able to produce this result without the need for post-processing (which many buyers of a camera at this level won't want to do), and the ISO 1600 performance is broadly competitive with any of its peers, though the EOS 450D still has the edge here.

I still like to have my G1 as a walk-around tool, for just the photograph by accident. the kitlens still performs well, even with the distortions, but therefore PTlens comes in way handy, all in all, even 2014 a good walk-by setup for the unexpected shot.
