35mm in a professional sense, has always been an odd one, because it was much smaller than the negative film that came before it (apart from Kodak Brownie film, which could have been used professionally if it was the effect you were after, but it was also mostly B&W). In the days of 8x10 glass plates the ISO was a standard 5!

Five whopping ISO if you can get your brain around it, on a negative as large as a standard print. No grain, the most natural HDR, perfectly exposed shadows.

Of course that was mostly B&W too.
