I typically shoot my D90 at base ISO (200), but was wondering what most people actually shoot at regularly with the newer bodies. I will typically set auto ISO up to 800 but no more for action photography.

My forum postings reflect my own opinions and not those of my employer. I'm not employed in the photo business.

The rule is, the lower the ISO the better the photo. I just got a new D5200 and my first photo was inside the house, in the evening with the blinds closed, fluorescent light on at ISO 4000 and no flash. I was amazed at the quality. While I am learning how to use the camera, I will eventually try higher ISOs because I enjoy night shooting.
