What is the maximum ISO you're comfortable shooting (and what camera)?

I'm quite surprised how many people limit themselves to lower ISO's. Maybe it's the type of shooting some of you do, but as for me, I shoot everything. I would never rather have missed a shot (or just given up and not taken it at all), or had a motion-blurred shot, than to use a high ISO.

Oh, and BTW, people, there is no need to "explain" in your post that using lower ISO values is better. I think everyone here knows that (at least one would HOPE so).

Try going to the club my band just played last Saturday night (SUPER dark, horrible lighting), and limiting yourself to ISO 1600 or even 3200, with a Sigma 17-70 f/2.8-f/4 attached. You would have left with either no shots, or a lot of motion-blurred shots.

Low isos is very limiting.  NO wonder ppl don't hear my words ...as so many of my shots are at 3200-6400 ...because the light is that dim..and flash not allowed.

Seems most ppl work mostly in easy situations.
