Yes, although at least one other Jap camera manufacturer has achieved much higher ISO, in fact I've heard it referred to as an ISO-less camera.

But, that's using ISO to achieve an acceptable exposure with minimal noise. Film photography is different. Here a lot of us push-develop for the aesthetics. I'm not trying to achieve a balanced tonal range unlike in digital. (I believe it's achievable in photoshop [wash my mouth out] using low pass and high pass filters. But why bother when film does it so much better?
