Well, yeah. ISO 1250 from the M9 is pretty reliably usable. (And I
remember reading some test which figured out that the actual light
sensitivity of an M8 or M9 at an indicated 1250 was about the same as
a Canon DSLR at an indicated 1600).
M9 ISO 2500 I consider firmly in "sometimes you get lucky" territory.
The M8 at 1250 is usually pretty good in daylight, but not so good in
warm light if you try to adjust for color temperature. The blue
channel gets noisy first.
