None of my cameras do well above 1600 ISO, even the film ones :-) So I
hardly use it. I prefer fast glass to use on my Leica (or gasp, even the
lowly E-3) than a big hunking Canikon so I don't miss over 1600 too much.

High ISO shots have a charm of their own, but just like plastic cam shots,
long exposure shots, or pano shots etc., they are "off the norm" so not
appreciated by everyone. I particularly like the first shot because you
capture the essence in the eyes - they can be cat's, dog's, or human's, but
nice capture to me because of that.
