sensor in G3 was already better than sensor in GH2 for high ISO... sensor in GH2 is a 2 years old technology plus as examples from other manufacturers (Sony Imaging vs Pentax/Nikon) show it is possible to get quite different results from the same silicone

You have nailed te heart of the matter: RAW does not directly represent the sensor, RAW is not the sensor data saved on the media, RAW is a half-product product of processing engine, attempts to compare sensors based on RAW file are futile (and stupid)
