Re: Olympus EPL2 noise superior to EP3 and OM-D?

Panasonic just doesn't do JPEGs right, in my opinion.  I had an FZ20, and while I was very fond of the camera, there was something about the JPEGs that bothered me, and they liked the smudging.  Olympus is known for having wonderful out of camera JPEGs, which is one of the things that attracted me to them.

I think the root of all this is in the pressure to improve high ISO performance.  People were howling that the EP3 still had the old busted crappy at high ISO sensor, while Panasonic was ruling the world with their new sensors, so Oly comes out with a new camera, new sensor, and, to show how wonderful it performs, compared to their old cameras, they up the smearing a bit.

I'm all for new sensor tech, but give me options on how I want noise handled in JPEGs.
