I don't know why I haven't tried this before - coming from the film era, I even had a hard time setting the ISO limit to 800!
Ditto . . . I've got two big trunks full of analog MF-gear that I never intend to use again.

Thinking more about this today, I just did a quick test. This might not be the best test subject, but is one I use regularly when testing out lenses etc.

K20D with DA 16-45 F4 - all shots @f5.6
I took 6 shots, one at each ISO from 100 to 3200 in aperture priority mode so the shutter speed changed as I changed the ISO setting.

Images were run through DxO as I do with all my raw images - images takes in PEF. Output from Dxo to full size JPEG, then JPEG resized to 1024x768 for posting.

So I don't clutter up the thread with 6 photos, I am only including 2 - the first is @ISO 100 - the second @ISO3200.
