Late afternoon stroll around Jeziorki in the snow

To all my neighbours

With the sun now setting just after four pm in Warsaw (35 minutes later than a month ago), it behoves one to dress warmly and set off for a stroll after lunch. A crisp yet entirely tolerable -6C, no new overnight snow, good conditions to a short walk. The sky is darkening all the while, but my new D3200 with its auto ISO feature and VR lens (see previous post) can cope. On with the photos then...

I have an old d200 with 10.2 megapixels however I notice that exposure with it is not as dynamic as the newer cameras and in high iso settings it's a dog. Now, as you're going to be out and about in the twilight might you give us your take on the two cameras at the higher iso settings? Also I'm curious as to what iso was chosen for the last pics you took using auto iso.

@ adthelad:

On the D3200, you set ISO to 100, with Auto ISO kicking in at a given shutter speed, which I set at 1/15th. Had I set 1/4th sec, I'd have had taken the first photo at 100 ISO, the second one at 800 ISO. Not something I could have done on the old D80! Anyway, EXIFs below...
