Maybe a D-600 without an antialias filter

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

Words fail me. I am seriously questioning why I should purchase another D800 body to try and get one that works...

Seriously. You believe this? Someone with 10 posts puts something like this up and you believe it? Send me your address, I have a bridge I'd like to sell you.

I don't fully believe it, but I don't "not believe it lmao. With what Nikon are doing lately...nothing would surprise me. Not even this!

When have you ever heard a Nikon rep disclosing info on future products that have not been announced? I expect something like that would get the rep fired.

Not being able to fix it is not a credible statement. They could replace any and all parts without having to rename the camera. They are not forced to come out with a new model to fix a materials or design flaw.

I've talked with a number of Nikon reps over the last few months (at store events and CES) and the ones I've established some kind of rapport with would always say "They never tell us anything until right before or at the public announcement. And even if I *did* know something, I wouldn't be allowed to tell you."

The D600 has been out for six months. There's no way they'd have a true replacement camera out already. If they started engineering a "fix" model on the first day that oil/dust problems started appearing, they'd STILL be 6-12 months from a releasable product.

I could see a sensor without the antialias filter....on this 24 mp camera, it would be a super winner!!
