I like the VR IV idea.

What about ISO 50?

There is always neutral density filters.

There is absolutely no point in that barring one case only, and that is the
case where you want a lower ISO solely for the desire to use longer shutter
speeds. The whole idea is to let all the photons hit the sensor and be
counted ... minimal noise. Modern sensors are so low noise at ISO100 anyway,
it may not be a practical difference, but in theory, it would be better to
have true ISO50 than to reduce the light via a neutral density filter [which
also is a cumulative drop in quality due to more glass].
