Nikon seems to have given up on the ISO 100 setting as native in their
sensors. The D80 has such a setting, but none of the second generation
cameras do. Why is that?

On the D300 & 700 you certainly can set the ISO lower by using the "L"
settings.

Probably because it is not neccessary. If there is no benefit of
optimum noise level by reducing the ISO number, why do it? In the case
of film a lower ISO number usually meant finer grain images. The
finest grain film may have been about ISO 25.

Are you a total nong?

Have you never actually taken a photograph that needed slow shutter speeds?

I dream of photographing with an ND400 filter, bloody marvelous effects.
