Like you I'm a convert from canon to nikon (d800e) I like the DR of nikon for landscape photography. But I also do a bit of long exposure using strong ND filter. The noise reduction time is a headache.

Have you tested the camera's noise at 20-30 sec range. This will be an issue for me, especially if I am doing pano shots at dusk (20-30 sec exposure) My goal is to minimize the time from shot-to-shot or my panos will not look as good.

Thanks for the post. The very least it made me aware to run a test myself.

I've noticed that 30 sec exposure can produce much LE noise on D800E, too, though surely not as much as several minutes exposure. Must admit I was surprised, since I've never had any LE noise problems with Canon. It'd be nice to hear what your results are if you give a long exposure test to your D800E.
