There's the truth i think; Although it seems that the mega-pixel race is over, and it's now going about who's got the longest optical zoomrange -olympus just announced a 26x optical zoom 'compact'! But all compacts suffer from the ugly pixels; even the lx3, although nice, doesn't quite compare to dslr's

I do believe the G1 is going to be the 'bridge' from compact to slr, and looks most like a heavily pimped (succesor to the?) FZ50. It's certainly going to be the succesor to my fz50 some day.

I'm not too sure I'd hit the panic button just yet. You did turn the noise reduction down to its lowest setting. I'd re-evaluate the camera by taking some shots with the noise reduction set to where the designers thought it should be.

If you're looking for a point and shoot camera that does well in low light, the Fuji F100fd and Panasonic LX3 are probably the best.
Here are some sample shots:

For long zoom point and shoots, I like the low light picture quality of the Sony H10 and H50:

I'm thinking it has to do with the settings or a defective camera. I don't own a FZ28 but you can pull up just about any FZ28 thread with images and see better IQ than you have posted. I see a lot of really nice post inside and outside here and other forums with the FZ28. Don't give up so easy. I think it can geve you a lot better results than it has.

But then this is more than a 100% crop, is't it? If it is,you should not be surprised.

In my FZ28-pictures, portrait of kids with flash, indoors - almost same condition as yours, I cannot see any "blemishes" as you call it. I'd have to crop more than 200% before I can see any pixels...

Some other day, I'll try to upload some samples - if it's of any interest or any helpto you?

Regards from one who just loves his FZ28 to bits!
