It looks nice but in its first 6 to 12 months of the US Market you will be paying a premium price for the Panasonic.

Before you get too excited about the low light capability of the FX01, read the fine print.

'Furthermore, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX01 allows shooting at a maximum sensitivity setting of ISO 1600, with the new High Sensitivity mode (Resolution significantly decreases in High Sensitivity mode)...' If it's anything like some of the other brand camera's attempts at high ISO, high ISO equals 0.8 to 1.9 megapixel resolution. How significant we won't know for sure until the first professional reviews come out. Kind of a waste of a 6 MP camera, to have to shoot at less than 2 MP in low light.

well i dont know of an "ultra compact" digicam that has excellent quality in ISO's above 400. And surely this model doesnt either.
Seems its just the technology and what it is capable of.

However to see a 6MP Ultra Compact with OIS - that's good stuff no matter how you look at it.
