some DSLR's I've used.
Remeber that they are your first few images, you have not
customised the settings to suit yourself, you have not had the new
camera learning curve and the images are slighly underexposed.
All in all I think it looks very promising and certainly promising
enough for me to order one!
I think this will prove to be way better than the G7 (only good to
ISO400) and my Fuji F30 (smears everything above ISO 800)
If you run Image Dscn008 through Noise Ninja the result for high
ISO is very good.

Just curious here (as I was willing to like this camera a lot, as per portability, magnesium body, price, etc..); Don’t you find the 64 ISO image on the soft side? I am not talking about noise in the other 2 pictures displayed (as I consider that, for my usage, iso 400 is more than enough in general use), but personally I find the lens not sharp enough. I’ve seen some G7 results (full size) at ISO 80 to (even) 400, the images seemed to look A LOT SHARPER.

Anyways, difficult to judge on 3 images alone, I thus added a link from a chinese site where there are 30 something pictures on display;
