Hi fellow shooters,
today I got my repacement D600 and all looks fine so far, no more frozen buttons if I pop a DX lens on it.
But no fun, there are two little black spots (looks more like inc than dust) in the viewfinder, nothing shows up on the images.
First thought its the sensor and build in sensor cleaning did not help but images did not show anything.
I guess now these are spots in the viewfinder or a fly got in and ....
I removed the eyepiece and cleand what I could do - no success.
Again I have to send this D600 back, quality controll seem to no longer exist at NIKON.

If you can see the spots in the (optical) viewfinder, it is not physically possible for them to be on the camera sensor.
They could be within the prism housing or eyepiece, or (more likely) on the reflex mirror or the focusing screen above it. Remove the lens and try a rocket blower (gently...!) there.

Thanks so much for your suggestion Brian,
I tried that, but the dots are stuck at 5 o'clock and won't move.
I called and it results in a return of the camera. Getting tired of the return procedure - if there would be no Nikon glass - a manufacturer with C would be my choice.

I just did a quick Google search for "Canon 5D dirt viewfinder" - and got over 200,000 results. Here is just one of them, where someone complains that all his 5d's have had dirty viewfinders, but none of his Nikons have...
