"RE: noise, upgrade?"

PS. since the camera HAS a built-in focus assist light (bright white), I wouldn't expect that the camera's built-in flash could be dset to focus assist. So when the SB-600 is mounted, that supersdes the camera's built in flash assit. Setting the SB-600 mode to AF focus assist tellsthe camera to use the SB-600 (re LEDs) , instead of the camera's white focus assist light. Right?
