Hello all,

I currently own a D80 and prowl the D70/80/90 forum, I just saw a post here about the D60 at Adorama for $299. Seems to me a great deal, so here is my question. How is the sensor noise during long exposures on the D60? I love the D80 but the sensor noise is unacceptable during long exposures, 1 minute or more for example. I have discovered by checking around this is a problem with alot of D80s. I came from a D70 which had no where near the sensor noise as the D80, I used the D70 to take lightning photos at night and would leave the shutter open for 3-4 mins and not have the noise I get on the D80 after 30+ seconds. Ask around it is BAD. If the D60 is better than the D80 I would consider getting one just for the long exposures night photography I love to do.

My other option would be to sell the D80 and pony up $600+ for a D90, but it would be much more affordable for me to pay the $299 and keep the D80. Anyone who has any experience with long exposures with the D60, I would appreciate your input and insight on that camera. Also I use exclusively DX lenses so I believe those are the only ones that work on the D60, is that correct?


Thanks,
Mark
