I read in one of Todd's articles a reference to "native ISO" and started to research it relative to a Nikon D5200.  While there was a lot of discussion of native vs standard ISO (mostly technobabble), I could not find any information as to the native ISO of specific cameras or groups of cameras (Nikon, Canon, etc.).  Since you can typically set ISO in increments of 1/3 stops, it seems it would be beneficial to know if your camera's native ISO is different from standard.
