What is Nikon's position on Hot pixels?
My D80 has about 5 bad pixels scattered throughout the sensor, none really clustered. One near the center is a red cross and the rest are white. Does anyone know Nikon's position on what they consider acceptable?

I just got off the phone with Nikon and they say you sould not have ANY hot pixels when you shoot and that the camrea needs to be sent in and repaired. The Techs name was Bill. Hope this helps.

Thanks. It does help, with the exception of the major inconvenience of sending the darn thing back. I have a wedding in a couple weeks and then booked every two weeks after that through the end of the summer. I was kind of (in a way) hoping it was normal.
