So do I. Looking at my library I have
roughly 86% are <=ISO 1600
roughly 9% from <=ISO 6400 and >ISO 1600
roughly 3% from >ISO 6400 and <=ISO 12800
roughly .01% >ISO 12800 and <=ISO 102400
Usually when I am using high ISO it is indoor sports/action where I'm using a large lens (100-400) and need a fast shutter speed.
With the GR3 I was using ISO6400 at an indoor party where I wanted 1/125 to avoid motion blur during dancing.
Nice to have that option if the camera can deliver at those speeds.
