I did a survey of my own shooting a while back, and found that the vast majority of my favorite shots were low ISO shots. Mostly outdoors kinds of things. I came to the conclusion that the high ISO race doesn't interest me as much as some other folks. For me, when I did use ISO 1600+ it was mostly in situations where I could have a larger camera if I so desired (like at home with the kids or at a family party) and they were not really fantastic shots anyway, generally speaking. "Here's aunties Mabel and Helen." On photorumors.com they just leaked the idea of Fuji X10, using a 2/3 sensor and a 4X built in zoom (I picked this up over on seriouscompacts.com http://www.seriouscompacts.com/f63/fuji-x10-coming-soon-3717/). my only thought was - will it have clean low ISO. So many cameras today seemed tweaked to get up to ISO 3200 and even 6400 so much so that they start at 200, and there is usually noise in the sky. I see this especially in Sony's backlit sensors, which have good high ISO, but a weaker low ISO than their previous gen chips. I know we'd all love to have a camera with excellent ISO 50-3200, but would anyone else besides me prefer to see more develoment on the low ISO end than the high ISO end?
