I guess they haven't tried taking photos indoors with the lens at the
telephoto end without using a tripod or the flash?

I've had my F707 for exactly one year. I just passed 9000 exposures while
documenting my town's bicentennial celebration this past weekend with another
550 shots. It still works as advertised with few problems that can't be traced
to my errors.

My Konica KD500Z has the same issues with low light situations, but I
find it an excellent choice for those things which it is suited for.
Not every camera has to be a super-fast, low light performer to be
excellent, JK. In low light, I either use it with a table top tripod or
switch to my F717. The Sony should do a little better in low light
because it supports ISO 400, albeit at the cost of increased noise in
the image.

Also, most of the time when you're shooting indoors without flash,
you're not at a telephoto setting either so you have up to f/2.8 light
gathering power.

You just cannot make an ultra compact with a fast, long lens. The two
design ideas are incompatible.
