No it is not a better high ISO shot because it was shot @f8.

This would never be a "real life" high ISO condition. Using high ISo is for a reason! I usually need ISO6400 at a volleyball game where I have to shoot with my lens wide open (f2.8) and a shutter speed that is just about enough to freeze the action. Once I have reached my "limit" with aperture and speed only then do I increase the ISO.

If I can use an aperture of f8@ 6400 I would be much better off to shoot @ f2.8 and an ISO of in the range of ISO800 which comes to about the same.

Most of the high ISO shots posted so far are NOT real life scenarios as most of them use higher f stops.
