Bought my D80 a week ago and have shot pictures indoors, outdoors, with my lens cap on at ISO 100-1600 for 5 and 30 seconds. I seem to have two green, one blue, and one red hot pixel. They mostly show at 100% enlargement. The LCD finder seems to be fine. I looked at some pictures I had shot with my D70s at 300% and saw no hot pixels.

So, now I have to decide if I should return it to swap out for another that may be better or worse; go through the pack up process and try to explain to people who really don't understand this problem that I've paid $1400 for a very fine camera, and I don't think I should have to see hot crosses on my photographs. I know these may be within Nikon specs, but when I read posts from people who have no hot pixel problems, I get a bit frustrated. So, I know everyone is tired of the hot pixel posts, but I think more than one or two is unreasonable.

Any new thoughts on this issue?
