The full title would not have fitted...

So you are saying that because the G3 can produce high iso jpgs that match APS cameras then they are obsolete ?

I said what I said.

It's the beginning of the end of APS-C "superiority" over µ4/3.

APS-C won't fade away for a while, but it will lose its domination of the ILC market, because ultimately, µ4/3 will have more advantages for the average user. Better OOC JPEG quality could very well be a major one now already.

Mind you, the results I get in real-world shooting might not be as good as those studio shots...

Or just in the ( limited ) area of high ISO jpgs ? In which case your OP's title was a little bit hyperbolic

Hyperbolic perhaps because of the need to abbreviate.

Factual? we'll see in another 12 to 18 months...but the APS-C camp's claim that µ4/3 images could never even match. leave alone better their's, is now disproved.
