Hi Ted,

My Canon DSLR has ISO settings going up to 1600, and I find the 800 to 
be excellent and the 1600 highly usable. I may post some pictures I took 
of my wife during our anniversary dinner in an Amsterdam restaurant a 
couple of weeks ago--all shot in dim light at 1600, and all highly 
usable even though shot with a crappy Sigma zoom.

There is no question in my mind that the images I get from this camera 
at 800 or 1600 are superior to film. There is also a pseudo 3200 
setting--I think all it does is dialling in an extra stop of exposure 
compensation--and that one I find quite ugly. But then again, film I 
have shot at 3200 is also quite ugle...That setting is truly for 
situations where getting an image--any image--is absolutely necessary.
