Re: Except it appears to be BETTER than the Sony Sensor.

OK, I'll wait and see.  I want a column count sensor, I'm interested in DR at base ISO, high ISO I don't care about.  In the past Panny's own sensors have been, like Canon's, almost purpose designed not to suit me.  I shall keep an open mind.
I'll also say, I'm perfectly happy with the Oly (Sony) sensor as far as DR goes.  All I want is more pixels.

According to those folks who've shot with pre-production GX7s.

Panasonic themselves claim it is 6 DB better Signal to Noise Ratio than the GH3. That translates, IF TRUE, to slightly over 13 EV, and would garner a DxOMark score of 75 or more. Of course, we need to see testing to validate or disprove this claim.
