    to take good pictures at night,don't look for panasonic,their noise still pretty terrible.
    can try F10 or F11 for cleaner and higher ISO performance.
    sorry but their recent batches of F10 and F11 have vertical banding problem.
    test it out to be sure.

    Get the FujiFilm Finepix F11. Lower than S$600, yet better specs than what you're asking for.

    looking for low noise night shot -> forget about panasonic
    looking for high optical zoom -> panasonic is a good choice

    you can't have the best of both world. something got to give.

    you got to rank your priorities. price/higher ISO/optical zoom/Image stabilisation/screen which is most important and decide from there
