Yes, I have seen that as well, in very dark conditions. However, my brother sent his D600 in, and they agreed it was electrically challenged, and cheerfully replaced it. The replacement functions well, and has no dust or oil spots as yet. Neither does mine at 999 images, and both of us are most impressed with its quality.
