Martin, I use the LX100 up to ISO 800 only - and rely on more classic technique (tripod, O.I.S.) for lower light. At that speed, the files are still very good. I agree that above, it gets murky really quickly, and that ISO 800 shouldn't be an upper limit nowadays - but to preserve file quality, setting a limit usually helps; I explore every new camera that way and set the limit at the ISO I still find acceptable (funnily enough in terms of SiJ 17, I go one full stop up on the S95 to be able to shoot at lower light - I use ISO 800 as a limit instead of 400 ...).

You're right, Matt, ISO 1600 is really not good enough. Perhaps if I simply try to avoid it as you say I'll revise my opinion!
