This is immediately after the wet cleaning or a month and thousands of shots have passed since the cleaning? Just asking. Either way its unacceptable...

I gave up on wet cleaning. I have put about 100K shots on my D3 and D700 and I only ever blow off the sensor with an ear bulb every once in awhile. I might actually go take a photo of the sky at F16 to see, but I haven't noticed a dust spot in a long time.

Finally have a blue sky to check after I cleaned the sensor with Copper Hill Method.

Serious question: are there any D600 owners here who shoot at small apertures (e.g., landscapes) on a regular basis and are confident they haven't had notable oil/dust issues? The issue seems so prevalent from the research I've done, and while you can find some forumites who say "well mine doesn't have it!", I'm beginning to wonder if that's just folks who just never shoot smaller than f/5.6.

Basically, does anyone have any real evidence that a D600 without excessive oil spots in the upper-left quadrant even exists anywhere? I'm very interested in this body, but I'm getting discouraged. What a shame, because the camera is everything I need at a good price otherwise. And I'm not willing to throw up my hands and spring for the D800, either.

Yes there are. I'm one of 'em. We're no doubt the silent majority IMHO. Not to say there aren't really buyers out there who have had issues... I'm not saying that. But mine has honestly been NO different than any of the many other Nikon digital bodies I've had (and I've had a bunch). I've wet cleaned my D3S more over the past year than the D600 - and with both bodies it's been dust, not goop. While I'm not regularly a landscape shooter, I do fuss about my gear and shoot at small apertures a fair bit for stuff like studio work and airshows.

Interesting. Would you mind sharing your month of purchase and/or serial number?

EDIT: I just went back through the last 10 pages of the D600 image thread here. Absolutely no disrespect is intended toward any of the posters (believe me, I feel for you), but here are the examples of dust in the upper-left quadrant I found over the last 10 pages:

IME, this represents at least half of the "landscapes with sky at the top" type shots (the ones where you'd be able to notice the spots easily) on these pages. And at the risk of being overly dramatic, it's quite possible most or all of the others just had the spots cloned out by the shooters.

Please don't take this as trolling or confrontation. I really want to buy this camera and am almost looking for any reason not to be paranoid about this.

I have had my share of specs and spots, but as I posted before, they were never worse than what I saw on my D7000 in the early stages, and now at 5500 frames, I can go for hundreds of frames and shoot f/16 without finding anything worth cleaning up. Mine wasn't perfect, and when I recently put it through dust and grime for weeks on a long backcountry hiking trip without the chance to clean it for 1000+ frames, I still didn't find anything unusual on the sensor, definitely not "oil" spots. All cameras need to be cleaned - my D600 just needed it a little more frequently in the first two months I owned it, but now I am quite sure I can go 1000+ between cleanings without finding anything annoying on each frame.

My twice cents, put that great Sony sensor in a REAL body ie: D700x...and y'all would have nothing to complain about.
