A little noise is easier to deal with than insufficient DoF due to opening up the aperture or movement blur due to long exposure. Of course, when the ISO gets ridiculously high, which one can see in the viewfinder display, it makes sense to use the finger to increase the exposure time using the main dial... and if all else fails opening up the aperture. One's digital dexterity and personal preferences are another matter.
Cheers, Ian

Mary, i think Ian's comment 'One's digital dexterity and personal preferences are another matter.' has hit the nail on the head. My comment was to show that there are other ways to skin the cat and that for some one using an enter level camera that may be a preferable method. Choose your own path and find the process that works for you. If what you have been trying works then keep on using it, if not try something else.
