Looking for statistics about happy/unhappy owners of Nikon D600 experiencing so unpopular oil/dust issue with its sensors. The longer you've been owning the camera the more inportant your opinion is. So voting for real users only please.

I've had no problems with mine, dust or otherwise.
Had a 5D when it first came out and that camera was known for similar problems, plus no internal dust removal system back then. It seems to me if you're having dust or oil problems that eventually they"ll stop after some cleaning. A hassle ? Yes. But not a deal breaker IMO. The D600 is a great camera body.

I got mine when the kit price was only $1996 at B+H and I've been happy and had no issues since day 1.

HAven't used my d700 since then - I should sell it.

I had no spots of any kind when the camera was new. Last week, while shooting outdoors and changing lenses several times, I noticed one spot in the upper LH corner. One sweep with the sensor brush removed it, so I voted in the first category.

Mine got really grungy after 3500 shots and I cleaned it with sensor swabs. I'll have to check it again and then vote because I typically shoot at wide apertures. I didn't notice how grungy it was the first time until I went to shoot a landscape at small aperture. Then I could also see the spots in bokeh highlights from some Xmas lights at wide aperture.

You could also add yet another category...

"D700 (or D300s, D7k, D90, etc.) owner who sees the current potential advantages of buying a D600 outweighed by the potential disadvantages".

Interested in seeing the results.

I think this is more about actual owner experiences of the D600.

I know a few happy d600 owners until one day they stopped down the lens aperture and shot some featureless subject. As long as you stay Bokeh to the max you should be fine. Ignorant is bliss.

No such thing as clean D600. You guys should stop fooling yourselves. Send me your D600 and I will show you the spot. This is not QC issue.

I bought the D600 to take pictures, not to agonize over dust spots.

Dust oil several spots new. Tried blower, swabs, butterfly...no joy.
I bought a sensorklearii kit with rocket blower and loupe (don't cheap out) and clean shots.

I thought the spots were oil spots...not dust. You can manage dust, but if oil is getting splashed onto the sensor...that is a different, and much larger problem.

OK in the automotive world, when you have oil spots in your parking garage, that means your car is leaking oil. That means the engine you are running low on oil and something will go KABOOM eventually.

So with all these oil spots splattering inside the D600, my question is the part that required lubing is probably running low on oil. Which means failure of that part someday? I wonder what part that is?

Not QC. Design flaw.
