ISO 100 or 200 ...

Lovely pictures John!

One tip from the manual...I'd avoid ISOs
less than 200 can reduce DR and contrast, but I don't see any sign of
that in your shots. Very nice!
P.S. That 50 mm 1.8 is wonderful...and for the price, perfect!

Thanks for the kind words. I have read the manual's suggestion but also read some positive comments online here. As far as I can tell there are no drawbacks for my photography and the advantage I seem to see is a little less noise. I can also use lower shutter speeds to blur waterfalls ... easier than putting on a filter.

Whether mine is a valid observation will depend on rigorous tests that are in the works, not just anecdotal evidence from folks like me. That said, if it works for me, I use it.
