I was more trying to understand why anyone would need to take that shot at 1/1000s with the XZ-2. Wouldn't you be able to drop the ISO significantly just by lowering the shutter speed?

I guess they just wanted to show pictures at that ISO.

Maybe, but that seems a bit silly for a camera whose strength lies in using a fast lens to avoid high ISO. I'm personally far more interested in knowing how the camera could best capture that shot.

I think you have unrealistic expectations with regards to noise. All the cameras you mentioned are going to show noise at pretty much most ISO ranges, indoors under poor light will be worse, again on all cameras.

I do think the Fuji X-A1 fits your needs best, and it's a great little camera, but this will not be noise free, so prepare yourself.

Here is the latest Fuji (X-E2) at rather low ISO (640) - and even this shows a fair bit of noise.
