Why anyone expects anything other than a result like that at ISO 51,200 escapes me.  It's amazing that it's on offer at all, but it was never going to be really "promising".  We've come a long way from ISO 25 speed film, or indeed slow speed digital, but the improvement cameras can offer in high ISO performance seems to be hitting diminishing returns.  Until someone makes a new breakthrough in sensor technology.......
