What do you consider the effective ISO limit of your camera?

Re: GH2, ISO1200-1600 [no text]

well dxomark says its +- 9 ev in print and +- 8 EV on screen so with my e-pl1 its iso 800 and i have done tests and its the last iso where grain is not objectionable shadows have quite good detail and colour noise is tolerable with skintones too! dxo is accurate.. when needed i use iso1600 but iso 2000 is also acceptable sometimes... iso2500 things get ugly and 3200 its a no no (very big difference compared with iso 2500)...

iso 1000 is almost the same as 800 but with a little bit more grain overall and less DR in the shadows so its probably the last real iso
