Is the Panasonic G3 or GH2 clean at base ISO?

I don't think any camera is that clean.

Nikon D3S and D3X both show blotchy, not totally clean skies. As does the D7000. And the Canon 5D mk II and 7D as well. Even the Leica M9. Not one of these cameras shows truly continuous tones in clear blue skies. Some are more continuous and more clean than others, but noise doesn't just magically go away when you buy the right camera.

That said, the sample you gave of the E-PM1 looks like about the same level of noise as when I took a 30 sec exposure at dusk with my GH2.
