Comparing to the D7000 images, the G3 really falls apart after ISO 800. I'm impressed that the G3 holds up as well as it does, but it's not as good as my G2 at high ISOs

That is a very strange judgment. Most people think the G3 leaves the G2 for dead at high ISOs.

and my G2 is clearly outclassed by my Nikon DSLRs (in dynamic range, especially).

That i believe.

I really like my Micro Four Thirds system, but I'm not even close to considering it as a replacement for my Nikon DSLR system.

Everyone has their own version of "good enough".

Over the past several years, you have had to move further up the ISO ladder in order to see a clear difference between 4/3 or m4/3 and APS-C. When there is little difference at ISO 3200, my threshold of "good enough" will have been reached. We aren't quite there yet, but we seem to only be a couple of years away from it.
