So you are saying that because the G3 can produce high iso jpgs that match APS cameras then they are obsolete ? Or just in the ( limited ) area of high ISO jpgs ? In which case your OP's title was a little bit hyperbolic

Look again, Nick. They don't match, they exceed!

I don't even OWN a Panasonic or µ4/3 camera any more.

I was about to buy an E-PL2 for movies and such, which my D700 and Fuji cannot do. But the E-PL2 is now buried at 1600ISO by the G3.

What good is Olympus JPEG colour if the details are smeared?

The only real advantages of APS-C DSLRs have been noise and background blurring. I haven't looked for any examples of that, but if they are even half as good as the noise and detail control, Panasonic have done it for the masses (who use JPEG).

Oh, and the availability of many fast, autofocus lenses, which µ4/3 still does not have for some reason.

Lenses.
Yes, they do seem to be important.
