TZ8 for macro?

I am looking for a compact camera for macro (close up) use. I intend to use it mainly for record shots of fungi and plants. I have tried the TZ8 out in the shop and it seems a reasonable performer - my main quibble was no RAW but I can live with JPEG Fine. I would appreciate some input from users.

How well does the AF Macro and Macro Zoom perform in the real world ?

As a lot of these record shots will be in low light is the higher ISO (ISO 800) reasonable - I am not looking for large print capability but being able to recognise features.

How does the flash perform at close distance - does it overexpose?

Any comments on overall capabilities?

Many thanks for any help

One photo out of focus is a mistake, ten photos out of focus are an experimentation, one hundred photos out of focus are a style. Anon
