Hi all,

Hi, i'm new in this forum so hello all.

Just got my d700. Love it. Ergonomics are great. Have come over from film and chose the d700 for the full size sensor. Just got it with a f/1.8 50mm lens and the battery grip. Can't afford any other lenses at the moment!

On getting the d700 ourt and playing with it in manual mode last night in my room (lit by one overhead tungsten bulb) i noticed that with the aperture set to wide open and the iso at 6400 i still needed shutter speeds of between 1/8 and 1/15 of a second. I was kind of expecting the d700 to work at faster shutter speeds at this high iso. Does this sound normal?

Many thanks
