    I normally can't stomach anything past ISO 1600 on a JPEG for my NEX, but last month, I was shooting under infrared light (which gives off a red glow) and so was forced to try max ISO with the 5N. I forgot to switch to RAW+JPEG, so it's JPEG only, but it seems to have come out quite nicely:

    No PP/NR, just changed to B&W

    I would have expect worse from 25600 ISO - that looks very good ;)

    And never seen an animal like that :? Its one of the cuttest creatures I've ever seen!!!

    Heh it's my favorite primate, something close to a lemur but rounder and more babycute-ish. They're African nocturnal primates and actually quite common in reserves, just that they only come out at night

    Fantastic - I have never used the iso that high, but great to know it can produce a usable picture. On the Nikon D3100 dslr the highest ISO setting is 3200 and on the Canon EOS (Rebel) 550D it is 6400. I know this because I know people who own these cameras - when I told them what my Nex went to they said "yes but you would never need that high an iso and the picture would be unusable it would be so bad" - will have to show them this thread and prove them wrong. :)

    Yes, I did try ISO 3200-25600 and the only one that could get the focus sharp enough and avoid motion blur was 25600. It does have its uses!

    (I did wish I had my 55/1.2 for this shoot, but I had my 50/1.8 only)

    incredible, buddy, this was very good, I used some high ISO and a slight PP to remove noise and come out an excellent photo.
    This photo of my friend Richie was at ISO 6400, with Nex5n- 18-55mm, f/3.5 1/10s
