One interesting way to shoot with high ISO is to do so to get high enough shutter speeds for hand holding, taking multiple images of the same static scene, and then stacking the images in PP after alignment to create a final low noise photo. I just wish this was able to be done in camera in a Pentax DSLR as it is possible with the Sony Nex 5n we also have. Of coarse, you give up raw output when the camera does the stacking, but sometimes I just don't care, and just want the shot.

Is there an advantage to that over simply using a longer shutter with lower ISO?

At over 8 frames per second you can easily take a sequence yourself.
