"RE: Tons of Spots"

I've had my D600 for nearly a week and I was able to see one spot in the sky when shooting at normal apertures f/8 and wider.

I could see lots of spots on my D600 if I shot at f/22 and maximized contrast and clarity in LR while zooming to 100%.

I read many postings on about "oil splatters theory" and got a little worried. But a good blowing out with the Giottos air bulb has taken care of 85% of the spots I could see under those magnified conditions. I can't see any spots at all with normal contrast and regular working aperture of f/8 or wider.

I guess if my spots could blow away with air they weren't oil spots. I've also ordered a wet clean kit from Visible Dust for ongoing maintenance.

I hope you get a good replacement for your D600, this is one superbly performing camera.
