Noisy G9

Hi all,

I've recently upgraded from a Panasonic GX9 to a G9. I think I'm noticing (happy to be corrected) a lot more noise in the shadows with the G9. I'm shooting in RAW, and ISO is currently set to 200. I tried extended ISO, but noticed the noise, and decided to see if 100 made a difference. Not really. I'm shooting with a tripod in low light as well.

Please can anyone suggest any settings I might have changed by accident, which may be causing this?

Here's an example of a recent landscape with the G9 (2 shot pano, stitched in LR):

I do habitually apply a little bit of noise reduction in post, but have removed it here so you can see what it's like. Loads of examples of the GX9 in my Flickr gallery.

Obviously, this is not a fair test against the GX9, but on the whole, I think I'm seeing a lot more noise.

Thank you
