I am not at all happy with the noise level of my D7000 even at 800 ISO - here are two shots taken at 1/1000,f/6.3 with a Nikon 200-400 with the front filter removed on a tripod (sorry about the focus problem in shot 2). Doesn't look good to me.

Do other people agree this is not an acceptable level of noise at this ISO? I sent these shots to Nikon and they told me to "lower the ISO" and "open the shutter" to avoid noise... not very helpful comments.

Not surprisingly, my D700 is vastly superior to the D7000, but I really had expected better.
Any comments or suggestions?
Thanks for the input.
Dennis
