    To be a little more informative, there will be times when no matter how fast your lens is ie; f2.8,f1.7 lighting conditions will dictate that you need a much higher sensitivity ie; Iso 1600 to get a usable image. Trust me you will find out that this is true. Your D70 will handle shooting under these conditions with little difficulty.

    The images from the D70 @ iso 1600 will be quite grainy.I have juat had a roll of Fuji film 1600iso developed for a course and belive me the difference between film and digital at this speed is noticable, the film is far smoother. however some people spend ages trying to get a grainy effect on their images. best way is to experiment with your gear and learn from the results.- Graham

    Having ISO 1600 (and above) avalible on your DSLR is a usefull feature, but that does not mean that you have to use it all the time...

    Keep the ISO as low as possible for your shooting conditions, and only venture into the realms of ISO 1600 when you really have too.

    I have use such speeds ( and faster ) on my D200. They can be pretty grainy so if I am going to use them I tend to shoot in B&W, and in JPG ( I have a custom setting for such eventualities ). They look quite nice, in a grainy way. Much nicer than a colour shot anyway, as the grain isn't as distracting.

    High ISO (on a D200) can be controlled by making sure your high ISO noise reduction is on, I tested this at 1600 ISO and in RAW with carefull post image work you can achieve very smooth results.

    However I rarley stray above 400 ISO, Just don't find the need for anything higher in the style or type of image I shoot ( fairly varied ).

    Having said that my 1600 + ISO test's did produce some very interesting B&W results, If that's your kinda thing.

    I use a Canon EOS 1dMKII for equestrian, the iso 1600 (and higher) on this allows me to shoot in poorly lit indoor arenas at night and still get useable results (slight grain/noise, but the customers cant get anything themselves without flash)
    When I bought the Canon I too thought I would never use the highh iso but once you find what it allows you to do...
