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,

Not necessarily. You can use the EC dial.

and losing the visual feedback enabled by live view.

Which is not useful for judging exposure if you're shooting raw.

Of course, there is a point (for me it's usually about three stops) when the game is no longer worth the candle.

Plus every stop you push is a stop of dynamic range lost, which basically amounts to pushing ISOs higher.

Except for the highlights.

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.

I do it all the time, usually using aperture mode and riding the EC dial.
