The D600 arrived today and I am charging the battery.

First Observation: The cats are much more interested in the B&H shipping box than the camera.

Second Observation: Since the battery is charging, I cannot look at the sensor. But I did use the new VisibleDust loupe and saw 5 or 6 small dust particles on the mirror and some on the camera chamber below the mirror. Five minutes with the rocket blower removed much of the dust. Had I not removed this dust, it might of found its way onto the sensor when taking the first shots.

Recommendation: Even if you do not have a loupe, assume there is dust on the mirror and in chamber of a new camera. Use a bulb blower for five minutes with the camera opening pointed down. In addition, regularly use the bulb blower on the chamber to remove dust.

Remember, never use canned compressed air because these products contain a lubricant in the propellent that can foul a sensor.
