Once again it's impossible to say which camera is producing the best result; one (the Nikon) is very noisy and very soft; the other has had such heavy noise reduction applied to it that it looks more like a painting than a photograph (I have to say, I'd probably pick the Panasonic result if you held a gun to my head and made me choose). It's a good job these cameras have image stabilization systems and decent built-in flash units, so you'll not need to do to ISO 800 except in an emergency.
