I had the original EP1 and still have the Panny G2 which used the same sensor, I believe. My XZ2 compares very well to that generation when using RAW. I even think there is a bit more DR in the shadows. I would say that it is about 1/3 stop more noisy, but there isn't much in it at 24" screen size. I was actually suprised to find this. I never shot much above ISO 800 with the G2 and I'm quite pleased with the XZ2 performance at that level. Above that, shots are still useable at increasingly reduced sizes. It's a quite impressive performance all around for such a small sensor.
