Hot Pixels at fast shutter/moderate ISO, low light.
Just got my D700 and was pretty surprised to see a hot pixel at fast shutter speed with moderately low (for the D700 at least) ISO. The pixel starts to show around ISO 400.
Couple of screen shots:
Larger RAW - bum pixel due south of the center point (in the border of the monitor)
Contemplating getting it replaced - wondered how many other folk experience the similar issues, and what their thoughts were on it.
I'm aware they can be remapped by an RTB but to be honest this is a brand new camera - it should be "pristine".

Had the same thing happen to me, sent it back to the dealer for a replacement. Called Nikon first for their advice, which was to send it back for an exchange. I agree, a brand new camera should be perfect, especially a $2300.00 camera body!

In an interesting twist to the story - the pixel disappeared today after 50 or 60 extra shots at different ISOs. I'd read elsewhere on this board that "warming up" the sensor and then self-cleaning it could "fix" it.
I guess something similar happened that freed the pixel. Will be monitoring it quite closely though to see if it returns.
