Nice shots!

I initially was restricting my images to ISO400 or lower (ISO100 outside), but having seen these and other high ISO shots from the XZ-1, I think I'll try even more above 400. I find the ISO1600 and ISO3200 shots of the VF-2 very impressive indeed. Did you perform any post-processing on these?

I took a few shots recently at a circus (very low light indoors), as well as some shots inside a museum, at ISO800-1600. Sure, if you blow up to 100% to pixel peep, the noise is there and details are smeared. But viewed at a normal screen size I think they still look pretty impressive, much more so than I would have expected based on high ISO images in professional reviews of the camera.

I just think it's great to have a camera that doesn't require a flash for decent shots indoors!

No post precessing at all , they ae all straight out of the camera.
I shoot mostly with the Art Filters , my favourite being 'Pin Hole' , the camera manages to choose and deliver pictures which are always under the ISO400 , fantastic.
