Panasonic had to delay the product. They had to back track and put in the Sony Sensor.

They saw the performance of early E-M5 models and shat their pants.

here is what Panasonic says @ http://panasonic.net/avc/lumix/systemcamera/gms/gh3/still_image_quality.html

"Panasonic focused on the following three areas: (1) minimizing noise in the sensor"

do you think that Panasonic 'd say something like this if the sensor design is done by Sony Semiconductor ?

They can reduce sensor noise by purchasing a low-noise sensor.
Like you can reduce your car's tire noise by purchasing a new tire.

It doesn't necessarily mean it makes its own sensor.
