This is what happens when we compare a top camera to other less expensive (but good) cameras.

For a demanding person to have two cameras, better to choose them from the same level of quality and price. This way when we use one and another pictures will have similar IQ.

But the G5 is not a deceiving camera in IQ, it can just not be equal to one that is a top camera.

I found the G5 a very pleasant and good camera for the price.

Let's see if they put the GH3 sensor on the G6, but I doubt. They have to keep the price competitive.

Not true. If Olympus is able to put the E-M5 sensor in their PEN bodies without cannibalizing E-M5 sales a lot (PEN users don't buy an E-M5 due to the body size), then Panasonic should be able to do the same. Even more so, because the bulk of the GH3 isn't for the taste of many buyers of mirrorless system cameras.

Panasonic needs urgently a smaller (than GH3) body oriented at stills photographers (with good analog external controls and a good view finder) and the image quality of the E-M5/GH3.
