Severe underexposure...

That's very underexposed.  What mode were you shooting in?  f/6.5 is the widest available aperture at max zoom on the camera, so I'm guessing you were either in Tv or M and couldn't select a wider aperture to get more light.

Either way, the meter should have been telling you the image was going to be several stops underexposed.  I'd suggest learning how to read the meter so you can avoid this - underexposure will always bring out noise in digital images, but especially on smaller sensors.
