In my experience, fz28 (far better then my fz7 about noise and noise reduction) can take photos with acceptable noise with the usual strategies:

-stay in low iso (how many times do you need to shot in low light ?)

-use raw, this is a little pearl of our camera. Don't use default settings in raw software, generally you will obtain a similar result to the in camera processing (or worse...) Instead, control manually every parameter. This is a tedious and long approach, but... for best results you have a price to pay

-use histogram !! Try to expose towards the right zone of the histogram. With this trick I was able to recover also my incredibly noisy lx1. There are a lot of discussions about this technique, for exemple:

Generally remember that darken in pp a bright image (not burned!) produce shadows, but lightening shadows often produce noise.
