Just came back from a vacation with my D7000. About half-way through the trip, I started seeing this happen to my images (see below). For the remainder of the trip, it happened on some shots, but not all, in random conditions, with different lenses. Clearly the issue is in the body itself.
As you can see...the weird pixel issue is not in one consistent place on the sensor, but rather happens in varying parts of the image. At first I though it was mostly in the brighter/over-exposed areas, but in some images it happens in darker/shadowed areas.
Took it to my local shop (whom I believe to be very knowledgeable) today and two of the guys were stumped, saying they had never seen it. One guy said it may have something to do with the analog-to-digital converter (????), or maybe vice-versa...
I'm going back there tomorrow to see one of their other guys who is more directly connected with Nikon to see where we go next. Any thoughts or experience with something like this??? I'm not looking forward to a big repair bill...maybe time to upgrade to the D7100....
