GH1 much better at high ISO than people realize.

I posted this on another thread, but I think it deserves its own because it's very important for people considering the GH1 for high ISO. Panasonic (for reasons unknown to me) seems to be the only company that understates its actual ISO. Everyone else essentially cheats by overstating the ISO. According to DXO, actual measured iso looks like this:

ISO 1600
D90 - 1125
500D - 1255
EP-2 - 1026
GF1 - 2316
GH1 - 2154

ISO 3200
D90 - 2322
500D - 2333
EP-2 - 2039
GF1 - 4557
GH1 - 4176

ISO 1600 on the Panasonic cams is essentially the same thing as ISO 3200 on the Canikons in terms of exposure. Panasonic is way ahead of olympus right now for high ISO. Sorry if this has already been posted.
