Basically, I have found that the spotting

>fix.

You sound like one of the lucky ones. Many users have reported multiple sensor cleanings only to have the problem return. Not to mention some lubricant spots can be very hard to clean.

Here is a thread filled with these reports: https://www.nikonians.org/forums/dcboard.php?az=show_topic&forum=435&topic_id=2418&mesg_id=2418&page=2

I think the d600 is a phenomenal camera and if you have one of the good ones its all rainbows and sunshine. However, if you just spent $2000 on a camera that needs constant sensor cleanings: keeping in mind if you damage anything in the process you void your warranty, I would say that is worth some furor and is not a trivial fix.

Expecting a new camera to function like a new camera is not unreasonable to most people. If I bought a new car that needed constant oil changes everying 500 miles I would be equally dissatisfied, even though I can change the oil myself.
