I'm still going to get (soon I hope!) the Oyl E/PL2 over the G3 - the test images I've seen simply seem better (e.g. skin tones, colour) with slightly more detail than the G3 (e.g. see the image comparison above)

Well, I've now looked at that comparison, and while the Panasonic has more noise at 800ISO, it also has more detail than the Olympus (not the other way around). Just look at the eyebrows...

Quite frankly, if Olympus is smearing away that much fine detail at ISO800 I don't need one, and I now won't get one.

The fact is that you can always reduce noise from JPEGS later on, but you cannot return detail which has been lost through noise smearing. Detail is king, they tell me.

Well, that's what reviewers have all been saying for years, and what my processing shows. Maybe others find different results?
