I would say that the GH2 is a bit better than the 12mp sensor though certainly not silky clean even at base especially in shadows . I have the GF1 {which has the ubiquitous 12mp sensor} and GH2 I did a test comparing them both at RAW with the same lens and subject at a wide range of ISOs and included a link to the RAW files in the thread below .

Hi Jim,

thanks for the link. I downloaded your samples, and it certainly looks like the GH2 is a step up from the GF1. Not quite sure if it would pass my 'sky' test, but considering the conditions, pretty decent. I guess on these smaller sensors we miss having ISO 100 or ISO 80 these days
