So maybe I could use ISO 1600 with F900?

ISO 1600 is not too bad unless the ambient light is very low. I'd stick with shooting RAW, so you can clean up the noise in post. Lightroom 5 and Helicon Filter 5.2 support the F900EXR RAW files. I prefer them to Silkypix myself.

But how is the F900 AF in low light, really difficult? With most cameras I guess.

AF in low light is very good. I suggest keeping the AF assist light on in low light situations.

Not very clever with PP, but lately managed to get something out of SilkyPix. Maybe good PP is especially important with high ISO and noise? And is it a good jpeg camera?

- and to CAcreeks:

That looks ok to me. Have tried with F200, not very good.

Camera sale next week, and there may be some older Fujis involved. Any between F200 and F900 I should avoid?
