I own a Pana G3 and the 20mm 1.7. I likte to take pictures handheld without flash in the evening under incandescent light. The results are good upto ISO 1600 but sometimes you need to go higher. Is it any use to wait for the new Pana GH3 sensor to arrive (in the G6?) which has better high ISO since the GH3 starts to show banding with the 20mm at ISO 3200?

Wait for what? Stop taking pictures until you can buy the Next Great Thing? Nah.

In most cases a $20 tripod will probably fix this problem better than a $1,200 camera.
