The H2 will be the best regarding low noise in avilable light of the three you mentioned. You might want to also consider the Fuji S6000 while you're shopping. Although the top end of the zoom is a little less (300mm), it has a wider angle at the low end (28mm), and superior low light capability.

I would agree with the excellent suggestion put forth by my good friend, Rinnie-

Amongyour list ofcameras, the Sony H-2 is clearly the winner in higher ISO conditions, with out flash, and even hand held. I shoot with the H-5 model and have found it to produce good results under those conditions. I have obtained the best results at an ISO setting of 400.

Naturally, all of the cameras on your list will do very welloutside in daytime lighting conditions. It is in the low light level shooting environmrnt that getting the photos that you desire become a great deal more difficult.

The only difference between the H-2 and the H-5 is that rather than the 6.0mp of resolution, the H-5 has 7.2mp and a bigger LCD screen. Here is a sample photo taken in a theater environment at ISO 400, handheld, and with no flash. I believe this is the type of camera performance you want.

The Panasonic FZ-7 is a very good camera and takes wonderful photos outdoors. However, it is limited to a maximum ISO setting of 200, because above that setting, noise becomes a real problem.

It is a combination of the optical performance of the Zeiss lens and the camera firmware that clearly pushes the Sony H-2 and H-5 ahead of the Olympus SP-510.
