Skepticism is fine, but....

Panasonic said the GF5 had a "new" sensor that was supposed to be "better," but all objective tests showed that to be a lie. Remember the old saying, "fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me."

I don't believe any claims about Panasonic "new" and "better" sensors until an objective third party like DXO tests them.

Skepticism is fine, but threads like this go beyond skepticism to reaching conclusions without facts. Don't forget that Olympus said every new Pen had a "new" sensor when they were, in reality, the same tired old 12 MP chip from the E-P1. But eventually "new" really meant "new," so you can't judge the future based on the past.
