is achieving native Low ISO 50 a matter of reducing High ISO? If so would you buy this camera?

Firstly I have no idea how modern sensors and ISO work at all. So I hope someone who does can explain to me if simply sacrificing the Higher ISO will allow an ISO 100 or 50 in M43 sensors.

Additionly, I pose the question - if anyone would buy a m4/3 camera (such as an em5 mk2) with limited High ISO e.g 1600 to gain ISO 50?)

I guess it doesn't cause me concern. M1 goes 100 with lower dynamic range. I have rarely ever shot over 1600 and usually stay below

What are you thoughts about having ISO 50 that prompt the question?

I only ask because I never use anything higher than 1600 never needed it. 1600 is too noisy for me. But I have often wondered what a native 50 is on m43 would be like and if it was sacrificed to compete in the market.
