Thanks for your response Philip! I definitely have to agree with you on the above quote. Since I am not quite ready to buy I am waiting to see some more results from the higher numbered Serial Numbers from the D600 and if they present the same problems as the others that we may have seen so far. My current camera has dust, and although it shows up under certain conditions, I see your point that it is something we constantly live with. Your opinion is definitely valuable and I am considering everything you say.
You will have to let me know how you like your D600 when you get it- have fun shooting!
