I'm returning to photography after a few years break, I'm considering buying a D800 or D800E, however I've read about problems with hot pixels/speckling when using long exposures.

Is there a threshold point when this occurs i.e. 20 seconds etc, or is just common throughout long exposures? Also does this occur this same on the D800/D800E or is the effect different in the two.

Does the hot pixels/speckling effect printouts?

Most of my work will be Landscape photography, this will require long exposures with sunset/sunrise and smoothing water/sea's.

Would be great to get hold of a raw file with the hot pixel/speckling to see how much processing is required to remove it.

Any advice will be greatly appreciated as I do want to make the right decision when buying my next camera.

Thanks in advance
