I have an upgraded fz-1. Here is one of nightime fz-1 shots of San Francisco from across the bay.

:idea: Nice shot ! You did it with no more than 8 seconds shutter speed ?

I own an FZ2. Personally i wouldn't touch one of these cams for night or low light photography. Their sensors and just too small and thus noisy (they have to be designed this way due to the zoom otherwise the lens would be huge). Better off going for something like Canon S400 or A80. I treat the FZ line as strictly bright daylight cams only - great for zoos and the like, but no good for indoors or night time.
