Shot noise will depend on quantum efficiency so the low shot noise of
the FZ50 implies that the sensor manages a good effective fill
factor. The backside illuminated sensors will have the possibility of
significant improvement in QE versus the current D-SLR.

Shot noise on the FZ50 is competitive with current CMOS DSLR's, neither significantly better nor significantly worse. The discussion was always about read noise.
