The EPL1 did slightly better than the others only because I was able to cap the ISO at 2500 since it handles high ISO noise real well. However, in many situations it would not focus at all. The ZS6 video was horrendous. As I started recording, the image would turn much darker (no clue why it did that). iAuto handled WB poorly. The G1 was probably the worst of the three (to my surprise). The flash was very inconsistent, focus was slow (particularly with the 45-200mm), and both the EVF and LCD were far from acceptable when light was low. IMO, none of these cameras produce decent results when photographing people indoors in low light. I don't have the FZ35/40 but my guess is that it won't do much better at all.
I guess I'm trickling down to the same opinion slowly :S

How about Night Portrait or iNight Portrait?
The manual does not go into any detail about what these modes do.
