Any harm in leaving camera in standby mode?
During shoots, there might be periods of time when you are not shooting, ie. waiting for the next good shot... (up to maybe 10-15mins), is it ok to leave the camera in standby mode? (for quick startup for next shot)... any long term effects on the d.camera?

Not sure about the rest but on a D70 I thought that should be the way.
I have on many occasion leave it on for a few days only to discover that the battery is still good as new. So leaving it on for a days shoot should not be a problem.

Not an issue at all.
Have left mine S2 on standby for 2-3 days. The drain on battery is almost negligible.

mine gets a little warm. especially when i shuff it back into by bag without remembering to switch it off.
comes in especially useful for transitions between a really cold place to a hot and humid place

Don't compare D70 with the rest of the cameras, D70 can easily go up to 2000 over shots with 1 full-charged batt. now that's scary.
