"Panasonic also claims that there's less noise produced by the signal transistors and in the signal transfer process. In addition, the Panasonic GX7 has a new Venus Engine image processor, which enables multi-process noise reduction.

All these factors combine to give the Panasonic Lumix GX7 a 1/2-2/3stop improvement in noise performance in comparison with the G6. Panasonic also claims that video detail resolution is improved."

I don't know where techrader got that information and I'm not one to worry too much about those differences but the GH3 and OMD sensor are about a 1 EV improvement over the G6. That doesn't seem to add up to be the best m4/3 sensor.

Having said that, the camera features look awesome and I am looking forward to seeing the real world reviews.

This sounds very similar claim that the GF5 had superior noise performance to the GF3, but that turned out to be false in objective testing.

And of course Panasonic isn't even claiming that the new sensor is superior or even equal to what's in the GH3.

Thanks for the link.
