Default low light improvement in fh20?

Is is true that there is an improvement made in the new Panasonic FH20 in terms of low light shooting? Would you trade out a ZS1 for the FH20? Also, no Leica lens on the new one. Is that an issue to consider in dumping the ZS1?

There are many Panasonic cameras w/o the Leica-branded lens and they perform very well. However, the FH20 has 4x less zoom than the ZS1, which is quite significant. More MP does not mean much. In fact, it can have a negative effect in terms of IQ if the sensor size did not increase. So, I'd say stick to your ZS1 or look into the new ZSn models if you want to stay with Panasonic.
