Thanks Brian for allowing my admittedly heated post, but the use of the word "hysteria" in the previous post rather set me off. I have seen no signs of hysteria in this thread and if that exists in the blogosphere a reference would be appropriate. The dust/oil issue seems to me to well documented as does the lack of an adequate response from Nikon. The non-issue of Nikon service centers being swamped with "perfectly amazing" cameras seems more likely to be a boon to Nikon if it came about since, if the best outcome would be a clear determination of the problem and a certain procedure for its remedy, having a large and random selection of D600's to inspect at qualified service centers would be a good way to achieve that end. I will be holding on to my camera, accumulating dust on the sensor, cleaning what I can, until I am more certain that committing it to transit and service centers with a spotty record at best is a viable alternative. Hardly a choice the purchaser of a high grade DSLR should be faced with - early adoption or not. Thom Hogan states the case in various blog posts and if the previous poster is referring to those comments as "hysteria" then I propose that he make his own case in some detail.
