    What ISO does everyone use for the Maximum ISO in Auto ISO mode? I am just curious. I initially set mine to 6400, but thought there was a little to much noise, so I lowered it to 3200. Then again, it could have been user error.

    On the OM-D (same sensor, so it's applicable) I seldom go over ISO2500 to be honest. I try not to use Auto ISO, since I generally don't trust any camera's decisions on this area. They tend to be quite liberal in boosting ISO to where you get a "comfortable" shutter speed. The OM-D has an advantage due to IBIS-5 but usually you can safely gain a stop of ISO by selecting a lower shutter speed. This is by experience with the E-PL2 and E-PM1 too.

    If you have to set it, 3200 is a safe choice though.

    I gues it depends on what you think is too much noise. Personally I think 6400 is very usable on my epm2 (which has the same sensor). However I only use it at a last resort.
