Marc, You are certainly entitled to buy what you want. However to not get the D600 because of dirt on the sensor, which has not been proven to necessarily be widespread is somewhat overreacting. Let's assume that it is a manufacturing problem. Nikon will fix the issue, and for those existing cameras that are in the hands of customers they will do the same. However, by everything I've read the issue does eventually go away. I have several friends who shoot Canon. The problems they have had with new models having issues/problems make me thankful that I shoot Nikon. I have a D600. It's a fantastic camera, and I'm thinking of getting another one as my third body. I primarily shoot sports and the D600 has worked flawlessly for me. If the reported problems with the D600 are enough to make you jump to another system then if you feel that strongly you should do so. However, believe me when I tell you that the grass is not greener on the other side of the fence. It is a shame that any $2,000 plus camera isn't perfect out of the box. I agree. But to jump ship because a sensor needs cleaning? Really? It's your call, but IMO you are missing out on a marvelous camera, and the best glass around.
