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?

Recent Coolpix models produce images on the soft side straight out of camera.

The good thing is that images won't be over-sharpened by the camera, and will respond better later with PP using a computer and software.

The bad thing is that they may not be sharp enough straight out of camera and will need PP.

However, most Coolpix models allow users to change camera settings on Contrast and Sharpening ... , which will help users control the outcome.

Nikon should have default settings that produce sharper images straight out of the camera for those who don't like to change settigs or do PP, and let those who don't mind PP (who would also likely not mind changing camera settings) change the settings for softer images out of the camera and do PP with a computer for perfection.
