The imaging Resource report summary refers to the noise being somewhat higher than average at high ISOs. That is normal in many digital cameras. My Konica Minolta A2 also has somewhat higher than average noise at high ISOs. You probably will be using high ISOs infrequently, like low-light situations. The flash on the Z740 is quite powerful and has a long range. You can clean up noise in marginal pics with a nice, free program called Neat Image http://www.neatimage.com/index.html (click on the Demo download). Most of my pics are taken with more than adequate light and I haven't found any noise problems. Check them out at www.pbase.com/tgaf. Good luck in your decision.
