I have used my D200 fairly extensively using Auto ISO in both the on and off position. I had begun to use Auto ISO more and more of late and, for the most part, have been fairly pleased. About the only times I've hated what it has done is if I am trying to shoot without flash in too low of lighting and the subsequent auto switch to 1600 has left an ugly noise trail.

Fairly recently, I was given Thom Hogan's guide to the D200 where he pretty much disparages Auto-ISO and recommends NOT to use it, at all. However, he did not say much to convince me that he was correct. I found this a bit disturbing since he is generally spot on with his recommendations.

I know that much has been said in past threads regarding Auto ISO. Perhaps someone can just explain with different and understandable rationale why someone would adivse against its use (other than some sort of "I HAVE TO BE IN TOTAL CONTROL" ethos). Thanks
