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

Generally had Auto ISO limited to 3200 on all my Pen (EP1, EP2 & EP3) cameras. Always felt that the noise was much better than I experienced in my film and early digital days and cleaned up rather well. And I also felt that you could clean up the noise easier than fixing a blurry picture. (Also, my tolerance for noise is probably greater than a lot of shooters here.)

But now on the EP3 I actually lowered it to 2500 because above that the camera says "extended" so I guess the real (read non-extended) range of the sensor/processor is considered by Olympus to be 2500. But I have no problem raising it above that if necessary - just don't want the camera to do it on its own.
