    Hi all.. Just wanted your thoughts on what the upper iso limit for auto should be set to as a general setting..
    Also have the larger E-3 and would rarely go past 800 due to noise..

    Thanks!

    I don't have one but based on what I've seen id set mine at 2400, maybe even 3200.

    I just posted a 6400 ISO sample in another thread, I wouldn't hesitate to use that if I needed the extra speed.

    It all depends on what you ultimately want to do with the image.

    If you set it to 800 on an E-P3, you'd probably set it to 3200 on the E-M5.

    I would set it to 6400 but LR4 can't handle the RAWs just yet.

    I set mine at 6400. I shoot a lot of low light and find that 6400 with no NR works for my needs.
