I was talking to a Nikon sales rep. today that seems to know some inside info on the goings on with the D600.

He thinks that Nikon is going to sweep the current dust issue under the rug by replacing the D600 with an "upgraded" D600S model that will be announced soon. That will fix the dust issue but have some upgrades to "save face" like the CAM3500, and 1/8000 shutter speed. This will make the new camera be distinctly different than the old D600 so they can quietly discontinue the D600. They will then keep the D600S at the same price drop the old D600 price to clear the stock and then discontinue them.

It seems that they can not fix the issue with dust in current D600. Even the new units are experiencing the issues even after they acknowledged that it is prone to "dusting." There is obviously a design flaw that precludes a simple fix.

Not flaming here. Dcjones may have received the true scoop.  I wonder why he hasn't had the time to respond, as OP, to any of the issues raised here?  I do notice that he has posted in threads relating to speculation about D600 and D800 price drops, among his two handsfull of posts. Here is one thing I'd like clarification of. "A Nikon sales rep" is, technically a person employed by Nikon who "sells" goods to Nikon dealers. Is that what you mean? Or do you mean a salesman in a store?
