For the rest of us, no it's not the G3/GX1 sensor, if the sensor is defined so as to include the RAW readout circuitry.

sure, the same way as Pentax K5 and Nikon D7000 and whatever Sony Imaging managed are all different sensors and neither is produced by Sony Semiconductor

I am afraid you got that wrong. Those are indeed the same sensor the way I defined it. This stuff about on-chip column ADCs you know. Kind of hard and pointless to take that away, don't you think?

the difference between Sony Imaging and Pentax/Nikon is big enough even all 3 chips have on chip ADCs...

Is that so? Exactly what differences in the readout circuitry would you point to?

DxOMark tests are your friend - go and check... for 16mp APS-C (Sony cameras vs Pentax/Nikon).

Done that long ago already and it doesn't change my conclusion.

and 24mp FF sensors (A900 vs D3x)... not circuitry - everything from CFA to firmware as a whole system.

Those do not have on-chip column ADCs and are not the ones we are talking about. So why bring them into the discussion at this point?

Whether the silicon itself is the same as on the G3/GX1 or not is anybody's guess at this time.

indeed... but the main guess is whether it is from Panasonic or not, not so whether it is from G3 or not.

I guess the OP has the privilege of defining what the main question is for present purposes. And he says:

After all, my logical opinion (and some others) was right the OM-D sensor is Panasonic (same as on G3)

Besides: What other Panasonic sensor could it be? There is only one other Panasonic 16 MP MFT sensor that I am aware of, i.e., that in the GH2. And we know it's not that one.
