one of the Oly PENs would be a nice upgrade (EPL5 or EM2) from the XZ-1 but to get serious improvement in low light you will need to get lenses faster than the kit lens.  (that's true even for me and I have the XZ-2 and the EPL2.)  Fortunately you have lots of fast 1.x prime options (Panny 14, Oly 17, Panny 20, Panny 25, Oly 45, Oly 75).  The question is how much do you want to spend and can you deal with primes instead of a zoom lens?  The fast zooms are pretty pricey and I prefer having a 1.x aperture available when shooting in low light.
