"RE: D600 Auto Focus Question"

I bought a D600 on October 13th, took it home and found that it would not autofocus at all. It would hunt, but never lock on to anything. I have a D90, and tried my DX lenses: 50mm f/1.8, 18-105mm kit lens, a Tamron 90mm f/2.8, and finally an FX lens - 80-200mm f/2.8. None would autofocus. I tried manual focus. While the image looked sharp in the viewfinder, the image when uploaded to my PC was not even close to being in focus: http://www.flickr.com/photos/gmontjr/8086689430/

Finally, I locked the mirror up using the sensor cleaning option and discovered the reason for the black bar at the bottom of my pictures:

I took the camera back to the store today, along with the 50mm lens. We tried the lens on a demo model and it worked. The store employee brought a new camera body out of stock and we tried the lens on that one. Worked fine. I brought my new camera home and have tried various shots. Works great.
