All the small sensor cameras are pretty close in low-light ability. So they are all equally good (or bad). The sensors themselves are incredibly efficient at low-light capture, but suffer from being very small.

Even so, in the right hands it is possible to get pretty good results, as the LL article shows. Of course you will see noise in large prints, but if you find it objectionable you can always work on it with NoiseNinja or something.

The most important thing you can do in low light is make sure you are exposing according to the ETTR principle. See the latest LL articles for the reasons why.
