here's an example of what the x20 jpeg has difficulty with. the cat's fur for some reason is always kicking in too much noise reduction and looks smeary, losing detail as well as

contrast creating harsh edges making the shape/form a bit flat

the room had very low light when picture was taken

jpg   obviously the contrast is pumped and nr applied. just seems to go a bit far

raw   more detail revealed overall more realistic and you have the option to adjust any bit you like. probably have a preset amount of saturation contrast etc applied while importing or just adjust one copy paste to the rest. raw give you the Powah!

These two photos are meaningless as examples because they are taken at 1/50 sec. which is not enough to stop subject motion.  Get better results at 1/250 or faster.

how are they meaningless if these are the settings the camera chooses for itself?

this was shot using the cameras auto mode. is there a way to to force shutter speed in auto mode? of course not.

so are you saying the auto modes in this camera=meaningless? these weren't even the worst examples

at the very least you can judge the decisions the camera is making for it's jpeg rendering which is consistently being flummoxed with low contrast subjects in low light situations.
