Did you do an ISO noise test on the GH2?

Can someone find me the link to the guy who tested the GH2 ISO noise by placing a lens cap on the camera and firing off several pictures at different ISOs? I did a couple of searches and I can't seem to find it.

I think you're talking about the guy on the DVX forums...

Re: Did you do an ISO noise test on the GH2?

I did some tests comparing the GH2 with the G1, here.

I took the GH2 back and got a refund - whilst I accept my test was by no means a perfect example of a scientific evaluation, the results were not good. The GH2 somehow manages to have more noise and more softness from noise reduciton than the G1 from about 100 (160) ISO to at least 400. I do accept that the GH2 does better than the G1 at higher ISOs but only a small portion of my pictures are taken above 400 ISO. I since bought a GH1 which seems better than both the G1 and the GH2 but I've not yet had time to do a proper comparison - got the builders in

Interesting since ISO 100 on the G1 will produce the same exposure as ISO 160 on the GH2 if everything is equal.
