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 concur. It's not clean, but that's what Lightroom3 is for.

Now the question I have is this: Are other cameras' sensors really that much cleaner, or are they doing NR without telling us? (After reading the Sony review, it's clear that they do NR for example.)

I don't know about the Sonys but my Nikon produces genuinely clean skies at base ISO without any NR. That's nice in and of itself, and it also allows me to use sharpening without worrying about noise artifacts.
