Hope this helps, here's a picture taken at iso200. Straight out of the camera no post processing done except resizing for posting. Personally I have had no problems in low light conditions, focusing is excellent. The only problem is the EVF does not gain up in manual mode to help with composition when it's dark.
Have to go to one of the auto modes and switch back to manual.

Someone can correct me if I am wrong, but the reason many other cameras seem to not have as much noise as the FZ20 is because they have built in noise removal features on the camera itself. Although this may seem like a good thing at first, your pictures may come out with lesser detail.

There are many noise removal software that will do the job much better, since you have complete control on how much noise to remove, etc etc.

Hope this helps.
