but why did they replace the shutter mechanism ?

I had a few oil spots and used 2 swabs, now it is clean but I dont know for how long.

My D600 repair notes said:

Replaced SHUTTER mechanism

Checked AF

Checked flash

Checked exposure

Cleaned Sensor

Please note that in my D600's case, the mirror assembly was not the source of oil (I am inferring).

After a few hundred exposures, I'll do the dreaded f/22 OOF sky shot and see what the results produce.

I have the highest regard for the people at Mike's Camera in Boulder. They were very considerate and understanding to the point of being apologetic for the D600's well documented problems.

I'll report back here with the results of the factory fix in a few weeks or less.

Note to Moderator: I am posting this in a couple of other threads where participants asked me to report my service experience.
