Good point Jim. I guess there's really no much point in pushing up the ISO past 800, huh?

Sure there is... holding ISO at 800 means having to manually expose, and losing the visual feedback enabled by live view. Plus every stop you push is a stop of dynamic range lost, which basically amounts to pushing ISOs higher. I just don't think this is a practical way to shoot in faster paced + varying shooting situations, which can be as simple as taking shots of an event indoors.
