Although both cameras show strong noise the P5000's noise reduction leaves the luminance detail alone, so you still get a semblence of sharpness, but the result is far from a pretty sight. The GX100 is even less impressive; there's lots of colour noise and an overall smearing of detail that produces an end result that manages to offend by being both noisy and blurry at the same time. We don't know who makes the sensor in the GX100, but it's not the same Sony chip used in cameras like the P5000 and Canon G7, and it seems to be no more sensitive (if anything it appears to be slightly noisier).
