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?

But you can't reduce noise later on without having a loss of detail as well. And I do NOT like postprocessing, and I would NEVER try to process the Oly pic back to the Pana pic. Print them out and ask a friend which photo he would want to give to his girlfriend if she was the subject on the photo.
"Detail is the King, they tell me", you say.
"No Noise feels like a Queen", I tell you.

It's about the mixture. At ISO 800 on the G3 I have to look through 200 noise-pixels to discover 20 more detail-pixels. That's out of balance, in my opinon.
