"RE: Nikon offical response to D600 dust/oil issue"

While calling people fanboys is never a measured response (even if its true ), I understand the posters frustration. I wanted to love the D600 so badly, and I did, I just couldn't get past the dust problem, which was visible in normal photographs, especially my macro shots.

2 went back to the store and I ended up buying a used D700 instead, which though 3 years old, has zero visible dust.

Anyway, as I said I understand the posters frustration as he was responding to a post that suggested that those who were concerned about the dust were buying into some sort of hysteria. This is dismissive to those who have had real, and documented problems in this area. In fact Nikon has as much admitted the problem at his point (in their own, lawyer drafted manner). This is not like the usual "my camera doesn't focus" stuff that follows every Nikon release.

For me, I am not going to accept this type of quality control from Nikon. This does not appear to me to be the usual small percentage of bad cameras that just happen in the manufacturing process, but a repeating defect. We should insist of something that is new, functioning as new.

As for suggestions that this is just an issue of users needing to do regular maintenance, I had 2 D600s that could not be cleaned with dry methods. I am not going to void my warranty and wet clean a brand new camera. Nor do I think it's a satisfactory solution to bring my camera to Nikon every few months (and if you don't live near a service center, pay to ship it!).

This is a particular issue given who Nikon was marketing to, this was the entry level FX for non-pros/experts. Not the crowd that is going to be particularly adept at sensor cleaning.

This self-admitted Nikon fanboy was and is disappointed. As I have said in another thread, I hope Nikon cleans this up as the D600 is otherwise a fantastic camera.
