#1 - ISO 3200 (click on image to view full size)

#3 - ISO 5000 (click on image to view full size)

 

#4 - ISO 6400 (click on image to view full image)

 

I would say the ISO 6400 is pretty usable for web especially when we need to resize the photo. I don't see any drop in sharpness which is good.
