    Perhaps your standards are higher than mine, and anyway I only print to A3.

    I dont print at all Brian but I wouldnt dream of using my FZ7 beyond ISO 100! Its lowerst is 80 and even that shows noise in dark areas-ridiculous!

    But Larry what are you trying to prove? This thread is about the GF1 Panasonic which has a huge sensor ( roughly 7x ) compared to the FZ7 and quite honestly on another planet in every respect.

    Owning a GF1 and two Nikons a D200 and a D300 I can assure you for me the GF1 is better at 800 ISO then the former and perhaps only a stop behind the latter.

    Don't take my word for it read DPreview etc.

    Yes it has faults but what doesn't.

    Sorry Brian, I had no idea of the specs of the GF1, I just presumed it was another pseudo SLR with small sensor and high pixel count.

    You are excused. :)

    I was quite impressed with my mum's GF1 which I had a chance to use whilst we were on holiday last month. The major downer for me was the interface, I found it all a bit fiddly (certainly a step behind my Pentax and Nikon digital cameras). That said, IQ was excellent, it's a great size, and a very pleasing camera to use (once correctly set).

    I agree, well I think I agree if by interface you mean the controls.
