Re: D850: Is auto-ISO effective?

I never used auto iso with Nikon but when I used it on m4/3 I could set upper and lower zones. So I'd normally go for 200-1600 because IQ on the little sensors above that was hardly worthwhile.

Some cameras would let me set the shutter speed formula or at least minimum speed.

But- one big worry about setting a relatively sophisticated function like this is whether you'll remember the implications of the choices it's making all the time, i.e. do you really need a shutter speed of 1/60s partnered with iso 1000 when you're doing a wideangle shot with a stabilised lens? You're just wasting image quality.
