-TM- , as you know I'm on my 4th D5000...and it is at Nikon now for the "FIX".Note ; as I stated in the D5000 threads ... my first copy did have this recall problem - AND I THINK - ALL - D5000'S TO DATE THAT HAVE NOT HAD THIS "FIX" SHOULD GO IN FOR THE FIX...WHY WAIT FOR WHEN YOU TURN IT ON ...AND DEAD , it happened to me.They know about this problem...(Nikon - fix em all.!).And for two in a row ,for me, to have one or more dead pixel...is UNACCEPTABLE(.)Their quality control should NOT be that lax . But, OK , (they) are fixing it - and I ALMOST love this camera(some things could have been better)but the low noise ALONE is worth the camera!Overall I'm quite happy(more than average frustration)- lots of adjustments ... and I have hopes of doing REALLY well with this camera.I know my exposures are a little bright,low in contrast/pop,and a little undersaturated(I'm aimming for"as my eye sees it")-(kind of);(color/saturation/exposure/sharpness etc.)...so I'm on the low - or - under side right now...hoping to pack a super punch-soon. NOTE I'm a swivel/live view person) - and if I knew all I know now,when I first bought,I would STRONGLY consider the D300 instead - at more cost AND NO SWIVEL.In my (swivel) opinion (coming from super P+S swivels-that pack a punch). Oh, the D300 in some recent reviews of (all)major SLR's came out on top.!,full sensors too !!!!!!!!!!But I love having a swivel AT LEAST for where is inconvenent for my eye-reach(no swivel IS a BIG loss , and LESS I am able to do .).Also ; anyone buying a D300 (or D5000) do check CLOSELY for dead pixels...one person -IN OUR THREADS- bought a D300(twise the cost of D5000)WITH 2 DEAD PIXELS-OR THE SUCH .Come on Nikon!!(We should NOT have to check on your lack).We expect more/better.I say, "Japan-do all your own work - STOP - SENDING IT TO OTHER COUNTRIES!,YOU SHOWED US QUALITY...NOW WHAT!!?!!...you are starting to show us lack-compromised quality."
