I take it you have never shot high school basketball. Kids talented enough to require 1/640 shutter speeds and lighting that would be condemned by a coal mine inspector. ISO 6400? I often need 12800 or more! It looks like they have one 100watt bulb on each bleacher.

Exactly, I rarely shoot below 3200 at family / social events, to say nothing of 6400+ at kid football, basketball, soccer, or baseball games. I've often wished for a clean, colorful 25,600 or even 51,200 - heck, why not 204,800? LOL
