Now that that's clear -

All the Panasonics I've tried or seen have:

Great feature set

Well above average lens

Acceptable image stabilization

Mediocre to poor noise/noise reduction/image quality, even at 100 ISO 
it's not clean. 200 and 400 basically pointless.

This camera is just fine in good light. If light levels below bright 
are to be explored, go elsewhere.

Maybe a D-Lux 3 _plus_ a Fuji F-20; the latter is cheap ($150), and 
is good for about 4 stops more than the D-Lux.
