The problem with the D600 was a faulty production run where some of the shutter inclosures had too large a gap at the bottom right side - allowing dust and lubricant to enter into the sensor area. A manafacturing glitz. To fix this, the shutter mechanism, and more importantly, the housing, needs to be replaced. Here in the USA, stores like B&H have returned quite a few to Nikon USA for this repair.

Steve,

Respectfully, sir, you have a post in this thread from last week that says the problem is fixed "completely". But the above statement says the shutters and housing must be replaced. And, as far as I know, B&H would never divulge confidential information such as you imply. You may have talked to a salesman on the phone but I'm pretty sure they do not have that information available to them.

So I am asking how you know for a fact that the housings need to be replaced when every repair by Nikon so far is just saying the shutter? Are you making an "educated" guess about that? If so, couldn't we also guess that there may be an insufficient or ineffective "seal" at that critical area on the housing?

And who at B&H gave you the very confidential information about "quite a few" returns? Just trying to clarify, that's all.

I guess you will never know, Stan. Good luck in your quest for the perfect camera. I never said I got this information from B&H. Read carefully, my friend.

Steve,

Guess I will never know what? The answer to my questions to you? Why are you so cryptic? I asked you to explain the source of your information and you tell me I'll never know? Then why the heck do you make such declarative and "authoritative" statements like that? For fun? Or were you just bloaviating without anything credible to draw on? Is this why you seem to get under people's skin here?

You say the problem is completely fixed then say the housings are the source of the problems. Then you say stores like B&H have seen many returns. What other "inside" information can you enlighten us with?

And I don't expect to find the perfect camera, but if I spend $2000 on a body, I DO expect the company to appreciate my business and not throw me under the bus.

Stan
